2 The Nativity
An attempt has been made to present the entire story of the Nativity and not just a single incident from it. The upper part of the window depicts the angel of the Lord and the heavenly host as they appeared to the shepherds in the fields. The Adoration of the Magi (the three wise men) is the theme running through the lower part of the window.
In the centre light is shown Mary, seated within the door of the shed with the Holy Babe in her arms. The star of Bethlehem rests directly overhead, between two baby angels. Above is shown the angel of the Lord proclaiming the birth of the Messiah to the shepherds in the fields, with the heavenly host in the background. The Virgin’s crown occupies the head of the light.
To the left of Mary, two of the wise men are bearing gifts. Tot eh right is Joseph, and with him the third wise man, bearing the gift of a crown.
In the tracery are the sun, emblem of immortality, and an interlaced triangle, emblem of the Trinity.
