Welcome to the March issue of Vidimus. This month we bring you the shocking news of a window stolen from a Cambridgeshire church and urge anyone with more information to get in touch. We also have a review of a recent conference on nineteenth century glass, and an appeal for help on cameo glass. Our feature is on a fascinating early sixteenth-century German heraldic panel in a private collection, which has been largely overlooked by scholars of stained glass and monasticism, and on our books page we review the impressive first instalment from the Canadian Corpus Vitrearum, which focuses on the Hosmer Collection of thirty-eight sixteenth-century roundels and individual panels now installed in the Macdonald-Harrington Building, home to the School of Architecture and the School of Urban Planning at McGill University, Montreal.
