Second Typological window

1178-1180


The 'Bible' window, originally one of the typological windows of which only two now remain, this and its neighbour. This window is made up from scenes from typological windows 2 and 6 (originally at n.XI & n.XII) and comprises two series: a typological Childhood of Christ and a teaching series.

The upper 14 panels (18-37) are original and in situ (18 and 28 restored). They are work of the "Methuselah Master".

The lower panels were severely damaged by the Parliamentarians in 1642
