Overview:

Angers suffered the usual iconoclastic assaults by Huguenot mobs (1562) and again during the Revolution, as well as long periods of neglect and clumsy restorations. Chronologically the surviving windows seem to cover a range from around 1180 (bays 121, 124 and 125 are probably the earliest) through to the middle of the 13th century - although such datings are based on stylistic grounds alone and should, as always, be treated with a pinch of salt. The only 13th century narrative windows not included here are bay 116 (John the Evangelist) and bay 127 (Infancy of Christ), neither of which I was able to photograph.
