Bay 4 - The Last Judgement

Panel 18 - Mary and John the Evangelist interceding

The crowned Virgin and John the Evangelist, identified by the only titulus to appear in this window, kneel at the feet of Christ the Judge, interceding on behalf of mankind.

The role of Christ's mother and His favourite disciple as intercessors at the Last Judgement became an increasingly popular idea throughout the later middle ages and was a major factor in the development of Marian devotion.
