The Resurrection

The Resurrection window is set in rough red brickwork over a simple altar that adds to the dramatic effect of the risen Christ. The figure of Christ in the central light is shown standing at the foot of a staircase, with his wrists still bound and wearing a crown of thorns. He is dressed in a deep ruby cloak and rose-coloured sash. The first and second light each show two scenes from the life of Christ where he is performing miracles and healing the sick.
Each of the lights and the miracle scenes within are bordered by medieval-style pieces of red, blue and green glass. The small medallions that separate the miracle scenes are also reminiscent of medieval stained glass design. The medallion at the centre of the rose tracery at the top of the window depicts the crucified Christ.
