One last close look at those scavenged, redeemed, resurrected panels. 

One of these days...  I'm going to head for Europe with a large-format camera and the only thing I'm going to shoot is stained glass in super-fine detail.  And write a book explaining the stories each one tells.  These are, for the most part, educational tools for the illiterate.  The common people, not being well educated, could still come to church and look at the panels and recall the biblical stories and the lives of the saints and other prominent religious figures — even if they couldn't read the words in the books.
