The St Cuthbert Window

14b St Cuthbert blesses water to heal Sibba's servant

This panel is the first of two that show St Cuthbert healing the servant of Sibba, a gesith (retainer or companion) of King Ecgfrith. On the left of the panel, Sibba arrives to ask for Cuthbert’s help. To the right of centre, Cuthbert raises his hand in blessing, above a dish held by a monk. On the far right another layman holds out a bowl, to take the blessed water to the sick man.
