Renaissance stained glass is very different from that of the previous period. The themes are still principally biblical. Because subjects in renaissance stained glass are shown dressed in period clothing, a knowledge of the history of costume helps date windows. Allegorical themes are even more elaborate than medieval iconography. Figures represent abstract ideas. Although Winston’s book was about medieval stained glass, he also appreciated the pictorial style windows such as were being made in Germany in his own day. He was opposed in this opinion by Pugin and his followers. Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin, was the architect who, almost single-handedly, established the Gothic style as the only viable ecclesiastical architecture.
Stained-glass windows have been admired for their utility and beauty since ancient Rome, when pieces of colored glass were assembled into patterned window frames. In Europe, the art of stained glass reached its height between 1150 and 1500, when magnificent windows were created for great cathedrals. The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City has an exhibit of stained glass. The history they give: Most of what is known about medieval stained-glass making comes from a twelfth-century German monk who called himself Theophilus

Colorful stained glass windows, donated by families and businesses during the town’s glory years, are in perfect condition. Rumor had it that the round window that hung over the synagogue’s entrance, and which featured a Star of David, had been manufactured by famous glassmaker Louis Comfort Tiffany and donated by the local high school’s alumni association. By that time, the loss of the windows was already the focus of a police investigation. In February of 2010, a month after the windows were taken, Harrisburg attorney Edmund Tad Berger, whose uncle, Maurice Vogel, had been Beth Israel’s treasurer, reported them as stolen to the Schuylkill County District Attorney and to the Mahanoy City Police Department.
Stained glass, the jewel-like union of glass and light that appears in a number of temples and chapels throughout the Church, teaches some gospel lessons in a uniquely beautiful way. Colored art glass creaked into Salt Lake Valley by ox-team for a chapel in Millcreek as early as 1866. However, it was not until a few months before the dedication of the Salt Lake Temple in 1892 that true stained glass, with the color dyed in the glass and patterns depicting a religious event, came to Salt Lake. Apparently the First Presidency was pleased with the prospects of this window, for two similar stained glass windows were also authorized. Two of the second-floor sealing rooms adjacent to the celestial room also have stained glass. The east room is decorated with floral Victorian-designed art glass.
