Stories Under the Windows

Stained glass windows were originally incorporated into gothic churches to convey Bible stories in a colourful visual form at a time when not everyone in a population could read, nor had access to a bible of their own. Today, the windows in St Paul’s Cathedral provide an opportunity for people who have little or no knowledge of the biblical narrative to engage with Bible stories with a storyteller.
