We close 2023 with a tribute to former Corpus Vitrearum chairman Professor Michael Kauffmann, a scholar of international repute, who has died at the age of 92. In the words of Professor Tim Ayers, Michael will be ‘remembered with affection and gratitude by those who had the privilege of working with him’. David Critchley offers an ingenious and thought-provoking reinterpretation of the lost west window of the chapel of New College, Oxford, its surviving panels now split between York Minster and St James’s church, High Melton. Our book reviewers highlight some exciting additions for the Vidimus bookshelf, with a generous discount offer on David Caron’s sumptuous new study of Michael Healy – additions to the Christmas list? Finally, our News section looks ahead to 2024, with details of the forthcoming Corpus Vitrearum colloquium and forum in Erfurt and Naumburg.
With warmest Christmas Greetings from the Vidimus team,
Professor Sarah Brown, Editor
