The St Cuthbert Window

23d St Cuthbert's body brought to Lindisfarne

This panel shows members of the community of Lindisfarne carrying St Cuthbert’s body into the church on Lindisfarne, instead of burying him on Farne. Two monks and two priests carry Cuthbert’s coffin across the shore. The priest on the right pushes open the door to the church. Two laymen watch in the background. Waves are visible beneath the coffin to show that they have just come ashore.
