From the pages of Vidimus comes this intriguing little roundel. The theology of it (salvation comes through belief and grace, not via indulgences and priests) would have been quite radical in its day. But I love the literal tug of war and the hermaphroditic devil! (Though we can't see its genitals, I'm assuming from the prominent breasts that the artist was following in the tradition of depicting the devil as a hermaphrodite. There's a similar depiction in the painted ceilings of the John Knox House in Edinburgh.)
The panels that started my fascination with monstrous (old) stained glass...... From the small museum in Ste. Etienne du Mont, behind the Pantheon. Not the best snaps in the world -- if anyone has any better, let me know!
So, you think of old stained glass & you think of proper saints, right? WRONG! There was some mad stuff made. I intend to keep a compendium of bizarre old glass -- the more lurid and morbid the better!
