Abstract

The identity and provenance of two very large seated figures in stained glass that are now installed in the Walters Art Gallery have been at last discovered: with two comparable figures in the Glencairn Museum and two busts in Kiev, they come from the double lights in the straight bays of the choir of Soissons Cathedral, part of a glazing program to which the king made a financial contribution sometime between 1201 and 1223. Apostles were placed hierarchically above Old Testament prophets, attesting to the power of the priesthood.
