Welcome to the April issue of Vidimus. We lead in news this time with a report on the impact on the recent, terrible, fire at Notre-Dame in Paris on the cathedral’s stained glass, and the French response to the tragedy. Other items bring news of a change of director at the Vitrocentre and Vitromusée in Romont, and of the Stained Glass Museum’s Autumn Lecture series, as well as reminders of upcoming events. In Books, the latest volume in the on-going Places of Worship in Britain and Ireland series, covering the late medieval and early modern period, is reviewed. Last, but by no means least, we are very pleased to be able to present a beautifully researched and presented feature by a young conservator at Naumburg Cathedral exploring an innovative photographic transfer method for the decoration of windows developed in England in the mid-nineteenth century.
