The Language of Stained-Glass Windows
Brew, Charl Anne
Arts & Activities, v148 n2 p30-31 Oct 2010
The splendor and beauty of stained glass punctuates any room. In this article, the author describes a cross-curriculum project which incorporated the French classes' research and written study of France in the Middle Ages. For the project the author suggested Sainte-Chapelle which is considered a reliquary and was built by Louis IX to house the Crown of Thorns, which he purchased in 1239 in Venice. He had the chapel built and designed to hold the holy relic. As the "artist-in-residence," the author describes how she helped the foreign-language students through the production stages of making their own faux stained-glass windows.
