The Work

This window, from a church in Montreuil-sur-le-Loir in France, represents scenes from the death and redemption of Christ. Below, three women standing in front of the empty tomb listen to an angel who is telling them about Christ’s ascension into Heaven. The next higher image shows the crucifixion. This is followed by Christ praying in the garden (a replacement for the original panel, which showed his ascension into Heaven), and at the top of the window, Christ reigns in majesty.
