“I have visited a staggering selection of churches, cathedrals, museums and municipal buildings where I have encountered and extensively documented hundreds of windows. I have been seeing a definite chronological pattern to the German style which itself seems to consist of a finite set of stylistic conventions and motifs.” Owen Luetchford (Arthur and Helen Davis Travelling Scholarship 2008-9)
