The three day Forum will consist of two full days of oral

one of the world's largest and finest art museums.  Evening
receptions will be held at The Cloisters and in the newly renovated
Engelhard Courtyard, which will allow participants to view some of
the Museum's extensive holdings of European and American stained
glass.  The third day of the conference will be spent viewing
stained glass in situ in five Manhattan churches in the company of
local experts.  The day and the conference will end with a reception
at the National Arts Club, a landmarked building which also contains

client on conservation decisions; etc. Papers may be offered in
