Pair of two-light windows with central top roundel of Christ in Majesty. The left-hand pair depict four scenes with Moses (before the burning bush and with the ten commandments) and Elijah (offering the sacrifice on Mount Carmel and being fed by ravens). The right-hand pair show Christ calling Matthew, an angel inspiring Matthew to write his gospel, Paul preaching in Athens and Ananias restoring Saul's sight.
