Stained glass: The art of illuminated decorations
With origins in ancient times, stained glass dates back to ancient Egypt, Rome, and the Middle East. Stained glass windows existed in England as early as 675 A.D., and stained glass production in Southeast Asia dates back to the 7th century. The art had a surge in popularity in the Middle Ages, when it was used in illustrations of Biblical narratives. In addition, the windows of the Florence Cathedral created by Lorenzo Ghiberti exemplify the art in the early Renaissance.
