Other documentation
Additional remarks
Additional remarks This stained-glass window originates from the church of the convent of Canons Regular in Gouda, called the Convent of Stein. After the demolition of the convent church in 1580, seven of its eleven stained-glass windows were relocated to the St. Janskerk (St John’s Church), where they were installed in the choir of the church. In 1934, the Van der Vorm kapel (Van der Vorm chapel) was built especially to house the seven stained-glass windows.
