After a prolonged Summer break, we are delighted to see in the longer nights and cooler days with a new issue of Vidimus. In this relaunch volume we delve deeper into one of the stained glass stories of the summer: the discovery of tens of thousands of medieval stained glass fragments at Westminster Abbey, a major national monument whose glass heritage was thought to be all but lost. In News, we bring details of a number of exciting upcoming events at the University of York and the Stained Glass museum, flag a prestigious Glaziers’ Company competition for early career stained glass artists, and highlight current exhibitions of medieval treasures from the Burrell Collection and at Strawberry Hill House. There are also notes in Books of a number of recent publications on stained glass and stained glass artists.
