The Cathedral possesses a rich heritage of stained glass. The Becket Window in the Lucy Chapel dates back to 1320. Not only is the glass of particularly high quality, but this is one of very few images of Becket to survive the Reformation.
Examples of painted glass created in the 1630s by the Dutch artist Abraham van Linge include the Jonah window and the Bishop King Window.
Victorian windows include the huge St Michael Window in the north transept. In the Latin Chapel is the St Frideswide Window by the famous pre-Raphaelite artist Edward Burne-Jones, just one of five windows he designed for the Cathedral.
