Photographer's Note

This is the west window of Norwich Anglican Cathedral, at the foot of the nave. The tracery dates from the early 15th century, but with the Reformation, all stained glass was destroyed. It was in 1854 that the present window was designed and restored.

There are six main scenes which extend across three lights. The bottom three, from the Old Testament, are seen as anticipating the events of the New Testament, immediately above. From left to right, there is Moses among the bulrushes and above, the Nativity of Jesus; next, Moses with staff depicting the Brazen Serpent and above the Ascension of Christ; and on the right, Moses receiving the 10 commandments from God on Mt. Horeb and above, Christ teaching.

Let us pray, for Peace!
