  • Title: Magnification as Metaphor [The Song of Mary, the "Magnificat," became a source of word play on the idea of magnification. This metaphor can be found in connection to stained glass, including Suger's windows at St. Denis. An interest in mirrors turned Mary into the perfect reflection of the divine will. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
