Abstract

A fragment of stained glass preserved since 1919 in the Rhode Island School of Design Museum was documented in the 19th century in situ in one of the oculi in the galleries of the Collegiate Church of Notre-Dame in Mantes. The unusual subject is tentatively identified here as part of an Apocalypse or hagiographical cycle; associated in size and style with a few Infancy of Christ scenes in Mantes, it provides evidence that a brilliantly colored narrative program was once to be seen in the hemicycle tribune. The style appears later than that of the west rose, and affinities with glass in Burgundy and with manuscript illumination in Paris suggest a date in the second quarter of the 13th century for this campaign of decoration.
