Window Tour - Faith And Charity 1 Window Tour - Faith And Charity 2


In the nave is a window designed to show to sides of the Christian character, Faith and Charity, as suggested by the figures of the Virgin Mary and Dorcas (an early pious Christian woman who was raised from the dead by Saint Peter and noted for her good works; she is sometimes called Tabitha). The upper portion displays Christ and again the Virgin Mary with the infant Jesus. The inscription reads: In as much as you have done it with one of the least of these my brethren, you have done it with me. The window was designed by Henry Holiday of London, after a design by Edward Burne-Jones, a Pre-Raphaelite painter and close associate of William Morris.
