probably 1890s

Most of the right-hand light of this two-light window has been lost. The left-hand light depicts Christ seated in the house of Mary and Martha, with Mary Mgdalane sitting listening to his teaching, and Martha behind, serving. Agnus Dei in the upper light.

technique: stained glass

Church of St John the Baptist, Dowlais, Merthyr Tydfil
(liturgical) west wall of the transept

Angels above and below the scene hold the text 'She hath chosen | the good part'. The upper panel of the right-hand light survives with an angel who hold the text 'Suffer little children' suggesting that the missing subject was Christ with children. There is also damage to the #surviving left-hand light.
