Two-light window with six scenes from the Gospels: the Presentation in the Temple, the Flight into Egypt, Mary and Joseph discover Christ in the temple, Mary meets Christ as he carries the cross, Mary with another figure and John at either side of Christ on the cross, Mary with John and another female figure, perhaps Mary Magdalene, with Christ as he is taken down from the cross. A quatrefoil at the apex of the window depicts Mary with a sword piercing her heart, below the cross and the sun and the moon at either side.
