The Progression of Bent Glass

In the 12th century stained glass windows started gracing churches and cathedrals across the continent. France became the main producer for the flat glass used to illustrate religious characters and moments in stained glass windows. The first magnifying glass was invented in the 11th century. It was utilized by medieval monks to read calligraphic manuscripts. The first eyeglasses were introduced in the late 13th century. In 1291, on the Italian island of Murano, a transparent glass called cristallo was developed, popularizing crystal glassware throughout Europe. From the 1400s to the 1700s, the Venetians dominated ornamental bent glass production.
