St Thomas Beckett Church in Salisbury, Wiltshire, UK, England
Stained glass window of saints.
The Church of St. Thomas Becket in Salisbury dates from the mid-15th century and is especially notable for its medieval mural of the Last Judgment. The Last Judgment mural was completed in 1475. The work was painted over in 1593 (well after the Reformation) and remained hidden until it was discovered and restored in 1881
There is some evidence that there was good stained glass in many of the windows, but nearly all this disappeared after the Reformation and only fragments remain today
The big town church of Salisbury was built around 1220 as a place of worship for the masons working on the 13th-century Salisbury Cathedral. It was rebuilt around 1450 and bears the emblems of the townspeople who paid for it.
