The St Cuthbert Window

15c St Cuthbert forgives the spying monk

This panel probably shows St Cuthbert forgiving the monk who spied on him while he was praying in the sea, an episode shown in panel 13d. The monk kneels before Cuthbert, surrounded by a group of laymen and monks, who witness Cuthbert hear the monk’s confession, forgive him, and swear him to secrecy.
