Welcome to April’s issue of Vidimus. This month, in addition to diary dates and reminders for a number of upcoming stained glass-related lectures and events, we are delighted to present two very different features, but both of which highlight instances of rare iconographic survivals. One, by Amanda Chau, the current Andrew W. Mellon Fellow in Objects Conservation at Worcester Art Museum, Massachusetts, reports on the recent conservation of an early thirteenth-century stained glass panel depicting the unusual iconography of the Seven Sleepers of Ephesus. In the other, Roger Rosewell makes an urgent appeal for support in conserving late fourteenth-century glass at Birtsmorton church (Worcestershire), central to which is potentially unique imagery of Christ’s baptism of St Christopher.
