The introduction of stained glass windows in gothic churches was brought on by a few different conditions. One of them was the change in architecture allowed larger windows which lends itself to the stained glass windows. Another is the stained glass windows allowed natural light to enter into the churches where the church did not have to rely so heavily on candles and oil. The third is that it allowed the windows to function as pieces of art and tell biblical stories as well as being functional.
