The most important examples of stained glass date from just after the death of William of wykeham .
The genius of wykeham adopted and adapted the fortuitous plan of Merton.
But Edingdon, and still more his successor wykeham, left very lasting monuments of their occupancy at Winchester.
The top central light has some of the earlier wykeham glass.
But it was one of wykeham's objects to strengthen the orthodox priesthood in a time of revolutionary peril.
Behind this front lay wykeham's Quad, nestling under the shadow of the towering chapel and hall on the north side.
On the apex of the gable is a canopied niche containing a statue of wykeham.
The influence of wykeham's building plan may be traced elsewhere also—at Cambridge and even in Scotland.
The windows are of the wykeham pattern, though probably a little later in date than his work.
Thus originated this defamatory attack on the character of William of wykeham!
