Fribourg Stained Glass of the 16th to 18th Centuries
From the end of the Middle Ages, the Fribourgeois were active participants in the custom, widespread within the Swiss Confederation, of donating stained glass panels. These luminous images – donated by cantons, towns, religious and social institutions, or by private individuals – were of the highest significance as an attestation of the identity and solidarity of the confederates. This volume presents the more than 400 stained-glass panels from the 16th- to 18th-century conserved in the Canton of Fribourg, and sets out the historical and cultural context of this rich heritage.
