Franks & Saracens in the painted windows in the monastery church of St Denis, 12thC

I have moved my site with the images of the painted windows in the monastery church of St Denis and added comments by David Nicolle, who seems to have been unaware of 2 of the windows.
Here are the new links:
Franks & Saracens in the painted windows in the monastery church of St Denis, 12th century (before 1140)
The windows in the monastery church of St Denis were destroyed during the French Revolution, but, copies were published in Les Monuments de la Monarchie Françoise in 1729.
There are 10 windows on 5 plates:
St Denis Plate 50 Nicaea
St Denis Plate 51 Antioch
St Denis Plate 52 Jerusalem
St Denis Plate 53 Ascalon
St Denis Plate 54 Ascalon continued
with text in the original French and an English translation.


Ian Heath based 4 drawings of Syrian cavalry, a drawing of a Sudanese Spearman and a Frankish Knight on these.
