French and Flemish Glass in the Nave

In addition to its 'native' glass, York Minster's windows contain many interesting examples of Continental glass-painting, much of it dating from the early 16th-century.

These acquisitions reflect the stained glass interests of Dean Eric Milner-White (dean 1941-63), who collected fine examples of Renaissance glass painting with which to fill the few remaining empty windows in the Minster. These panels, one French and one believed to be Flemish, display the virtuoso glass painting skills of the early 16th century and required repair after missile damage in the summer of 2010, a thankfully rare occurrence around York Minster.
