This window (which was heavily restored in the 19th C) was a donation of the cathedral chapter and continues the sequence of bishop-saints from 204 - the identifications above are purely speculative and based solely on the sequence given in the Gesta domni aldrici. All three figures use the same cartoon, which helps to accentuate the other-worldly, hieratic quality of these bishop-saints.

it is generally agreed that this window was gift of the cathedral chapter. The only titulus is along the top of B1; "LE VERRIERE ECCLES".
