These windows, like the stone work, were designed to tellvarious stories from the bible at a time when the vast majority of the population were unable to read or write. Unfortunately, I cannot place this section within the layout of the cathedral so cannottell which story this one is. I need to take better notes...

...Like Pope Gregory the Great once said 'The imagescan do for the illiterate what writing does for those who can read' to solve thecontroversywhether or not theplaces of worshipshould be decorated with human figures,during the early times of the churches.

Thanks for sharing!
