Chartres Cathedral, Saint Eustace, Stained Glass
This thesis looks at window 43 at Chartres Cathedral, France which is one of the fullest versions of the Eustace narrative and features furriers and drapers at work. I exam the window under a narratological lens and establish an alternative order of reading the panels that is more in tune with the story as told in the window. Additionally, I compare the window to other artworks from the time that depict Saint Eustace to establish the saint’s relevance within French society at the time of the window’s construction.
