The St Cuthbert Window

7d St Cuthbert sees St Aidan's soul carried to heaven

This panel shows St Cuthbert, dressed in red, having a vision of St Aidan’s soul ascending to heaven (depicted in 10a) while watching sheep, seen on the right. His companions, in the foreground are distracted or sleeping. The scene is split across two panels, enabling the setting of Cuthbert’s vision to be emphasised in this panel, perhaps to draw Christological parallels by highlighting his role as a shepherd.
