New Windows for Notre-Dame-de-Paris

Recent visitors to the Cathedral of NotreDame in Paris have been able to admire the latest addition to the famous edifice12 modern glass windows, high above the nave, replacing the flat-toned windows of Viollet-le-Duc. These 12 ensembles form a double window topped by a rose window, and arc the work of 12 different French glass painters. The change has been made by the Fine Arts Ministry under the patronage of Cardinal Vendier, and after being tried out in the Cathedral they will be transferred to the Missionary Pavilion of the Vatican at the Paris Exposition of 1937 and then permanently replaced in Notre Dame.

The subjects of the new windows are the patron saints of the Cathedral and of Paris: Saint-Etienne and the Virgin, Saint-Marcel and Sainte-Genevieve, Saint-Denis; the saints of the principal provinces of France: Saint-Cernin of Toulouse, Sainte-Radegonde of Poitiers, Saint-Martin of Tours, Saint Hubert of the Ardennes, Jeanne d'Arc and Saint-Louis.
