Abstract
This thesis examines three fifteenth century stained glass windows of three parish churches in Medieval York, England. Using the work of early 20th century glass scholars as a foundation, this project relies heavily on their records of stained glass and the works of prominent contemporary art historians. With their work as a precedent, the content focuses on a window at All Saints, North Street; Holy Trinity, Goodramgate, and St. Martin-le-Grand, Coney, Street. At each parish there is a window depicting one facet of Saint Anne's iconography, primarily her as a mother and educator. With these windows, I have determined that the saint is a reflection of medieval society and representative of a shift in late medieval lay devotional practices.
