From Paul to Wycliffe
Beginning with the scene at the bottom of the south window, Paul and Barnabas are beginning their first missionary journey. Just above them Augustine is watching a child play by the seashore. Nearby is a red triangle to signify Augustine’s defense of the doctrine of the Trinity. The open book and whip above Augustine’s head is symbolic of the torture early Christians experienced in proclaiming God’s Word. Directly above this, Martin Luther is nailing his theses to the Wittenberg Door.
A number of smaller representations are present on each side of this window. From the bottom of the window, left side going up, Thomas is shown in India, Athanasius at Nicea, Ambrose baptizing Augustine, Columba setting out for Scotland, Peter Waldo preaching in the Alps and John Hus being burned at the stake. On the lower right side going up are: missionaries in Persia, the first Christian school., the Council of Chalcedon, missionaries in China, Wycliffe translating the Scriptures and Melanchthon writing at his desk.
