Welcome to Vidimus’s March 2018 edition. This month, in our feature, Claire Labrecque of Winnipeg University presents an exciting new chapter to a story we have followed since 2014, concerning the fate of a series of spectacular early seventeenth-century panels from Park Abbey, Leuven. In news, we are happy to announce details of the British Archaeological Association’s 2018 conference, which will take place in Cambridge this September, exploring the city’s medieval artistic, architectural and archaeological wealth, as well as a stained glass-specific study day in Huntingdonshire in June, and also a range of workshops and family fun days at the Stained Glass Museum in Ely. There is introductory information on an innovative, online, postgraduate diploma course at the University of York, for which applications are now being accepted, and welcome news of two Heritage Lottery Funding stained glass success stories. A reader poses an intriguing question about the possible use, deliberate or otherwise, of optical effects by medieval artists, and welcomes fellow readers’ responses and thoughts.

Finally, Vidimus wishes all of its readers a very Happy Easter.
