Five-light window. The top row of the main lights depicts Christ in Majesty with Peter and Paul, the Baptism of Christ and the Crucifixion with Mary, John and Mary Magdalene. The middle tier depicts Moses with Aaron and Isaiah, the crossing of the Red Sea and the offering of a lamb as a sacrifice. The lower row depicts Abraham with Isaac and Jacob, the dove returning to Noah's ark and the Sacrifice of Isaac. The circular design in the tracery lights depicts symbols representing the twelve tribes of Israel, around the Hebrew name Yahweh. Additional scenes in the tracery are the Expulsion of Eden and the Transfiguration.
