Medieval belief was that stained glass symbolized "divine light". This does make sense since stained glass is the only medium that is observed through refracted light. When we view paintings, photographs, sculptures or any other art for that matter, we observe through reflected light. This wonderful slideshow of stained glass in the North Shore area of Massachusetts, recently introduced by Wicked Local, shows how light transforms these translucent dramas. Photographed and produced by Robert Branch, this presentation is both refracted and divine.
