Panel 24 - Christ with the Alpha and Omega
24 - Christ with the Alpha and Omega
Description:
While the rest of the window, with its signs of the zodiac and the labours of each month, is clearly devoted to the notion of earthly time as the circulum anni) (the form of time that concerned most people in their everyday lives), this panel addresses the eternal. Christ is shown here with the Alpha and the Omega - the beginning and end of all time (see Revelations 1:8 inter alia).
