about 1500, restored in 1876

Five-light window. A central image of Christ on the cross with angels is surrounded by a set of assembled panels, with figures in the tracery lights. The panels include recognisable apostles with inscriptions from the Creed, and scenes representing the seven sacraments. The best preserved of these are ordination, marriage and extreme unction (anointing the sick). The tracery lights include Mary and a seated crowned figure, perhaps Christ, and representing her coronation in heaven; below, Gabriel and Mary face each other as an annunciation. Further figures include two bishops, labelled as Asaph and Deiniol, and the saints: Marchell, Winefride, Frideswide and Catherine.

technique: stained glass

restorer: Charles Eamer Kempe

Church of St Tyrnog, Llandyrnog, Denbighshire
east wall of the north nave

The glass in the window is assembled from at least two windows in the church, and at least two makers are clearly in evidence: the style of the tracery lights having different characteristics from the panels of the seven sacraments below.
