Three-light window. Christ is seated at the centre with rays of lights extending into the outer lights. The symbols of the four evangelists are shown in the upper and lower outer lights. Figures at the sides are probably the apostles, and those below perhaps probably represent Paul and John the Baptist, and perhaps Mary and Martha. Cities and churches are depicted as islands in the waters at the base of the window.
