1922

Five-light window with the Virgin and Child with St Christopher and St Michael. Crucified Christ below on a cross of lilies, between Gabriel and the Virgin Mary as an annunciation scene. Christ in Majesty at the centre of the tracery, surrounded by angels holding symbols of the Passion and flanked by the martyrdom of Sebastian and George fighting the dragon. Further figures and heraldic devices.


artist: F. C. Eden

Church of St Mary, Abergavenny, Monmouthshire
east wall of the chancel (window number: I)

According to Eden's Record Book, the window, as proposed in 1918, was to include St Peter, St Sebastian, St Christopher, St Michael and St Joan of Arc. Although Peter may be one of the standing bishops in the outer lights, Joan of Arc does not appear to figure in the finished composition (with thanks to Peter Jones for this reference).
