The International Scientific Committee for the Conservation of Stained Glass is concerned with the various questions of preservation, conservation and restoration of historical stained glass. Created in the framework of the Corpus Vitrearum, the committee has been associated with the International Stained Glass Committee of the ICOMOS since 1982, in order to access a wider base of protection of cultural heritage.
In 2009, it became a so-called “hybrid committee” Corpus Vitrearum-Icomos, and was provided with new statutes, following the Eger-Xi’An principles which are governing the international scientific committees of ICOMOS. It gathers art historians, scientists, conservators, curators and architects, as expert or associated members, nominated by the national committees of the Corpus Vitrearum and of ICOMOS. It organizes regularly, in principle every two years, international Fora on conservation topics, that gather a large attendance of professionals.
The committee drew up the Guidelines for the Conservation and Restoration of Stained Glass (first edition Vienna 1989; second edition Nuremberg 2004), according to the decades of experience of relevant specialists.
