Happy Easter! Peace window in Canterbury CathedralMarch 23, 2008 at 7:36 am | Posted in Anglican, Bossanyi, Canterbury, Canterbury Cathedral, Children, Christ, Christianity, Church, Colourful, Easter Day, England, Peace window, Photography, Stained glass, World | 3 Comments
Here’s a striking modern stained glass window that a helpful guide in Canterbury Cathedral drew our attention to a few weeks ago:
Detail of the Peace Window (1956) by Ervin Bossanyi in the southeast transept. It depicts Christ in Glory welcoming children of all nations.
My photos of the Resurrection in the Corona Redemption Window were taken hastily, and at the time I did not know what I was looking at (next time I will appreciate these windows better). Meantime, this closeup Photo of Resurrection of Christ is a good example of thousands of colourful illustrations in glass all around this vast cathedral.
Yes, we did wake up to the excitement of snow falling here, and I did attend Easter Day services in St. George’s Chapel today. Magnificent.
