Fulbert meets the Pope (left) with the crossed keys indicating the successor of St Peter, and Fulbert studying in Reims (right) with an open book and 2 masters, from the Life of Fulbert stained glass window, in the south transept of Chartres Cathedral, Eure-et-Loir, France. This window replaces the original 13th century window depicting the Life of St Blaise, which was destroyed in 1791. It was created in 1954 by Francois Lorin as a gift of the Institute of American Architects, on a theme chosen by the Canon Yves Delaporte. It depicts the life of Fulbert, bishop of Chartres in the 11th century. Chartres cathedral was built 1194-1250 and is a fine example of Gothic architecture. Most of its windows date from 1205-40 although a few earlier 12th century examples are also intact. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979. Picture by Manuel Cohen
