Stained glass flourished in Switzerland during the Renaissance, and jewel-toned windows were found in churches, town halls, residences, and studies. Appropriate subjects were chosen according to the setting. Telling the story of Christ’s flagellation before his crucifixion, this window is part of a set depicting the life of Christ that was originally installed in the cloister of the Cistercian convent Rathausen, near Lucerne, in central Switzerland.
