Comments

A film of the Pembroke Windows' restoration project is linked above and to the right. A brochure describing the history of Pembroke College and the emblems on the windows is linked below.

Abstract

The film was created in 2002 to "document the techniques and processes used to restore stained glass panels from Pembroke College Oxford University England. This restoration was executed by A Touch of Glass Studio Normal, IL for Ames Library at Illinois Wesleyan University Bloomington, IL." -- DVD jacket

From the brochure's introduction: "Sixteen windows from Pembroke College, Oxford are major features of The Bates & Merwin Reading Room on the fourth floor of The Ames Library. Seen hanging around the rotunda, these panels carry with them a great deal of the history of Oxford and the United Kingdom. We are most grateful to the Rev. Dr. John Platt, Fellow and Chaplain of Pembroke College, for his help in elucidating the history of Pembroke and the individuals commemorated."
