Abstract

The lost Good Samaritan Window at Canterbury can be reconstructed from records of the titles given to the panels and the inscriptions that accompanied them. The content and layout were very similar to an extant window at Sens Cathedral. I argue that the programme of imagery was devised in the circle of St Anselm, c.1100, and registers his theological interests at that period. The window is also placed in the wider context of the glazing at Canterbury as it occupies a pivotal point in a sequence of twelve (originally probably thirteen) typological windows around the choir, transepts and sanctuary.
