The St Cuthbert Window

16b Dolphin meat divinely provided

This panel is the last of three that show miracles performed by St Cuthbert when journeying to Scotland with a group of monks. Having sailed to Scotland (panel 17d), Cuthbert predicted that God would provide them with food (panel 15a). This panel shows St Cuthbert, on the right, revealing the miraculous provision of dolphin meat to the monks, completing the sequence. Sadly, the glass showing the dolphin meat has been lost from this panel, but a nineteenth-century record shows that it was originally located on ground next to Cuthbert’s staff.
