The Light Shining in the Darkness

During the Middle Ages, windows became one of the most important elements of the church building. Stained glass could be used to evoke different moods and to depict Bible stories, legends of the saints and scenes of everyday life. The shards of glass are dark and dead in themselves. Light brings them alive and makes them tell their story. Light in itself is mute, perhaps too faint, perhaps too strong. Glass imparts form to what the light has to tell us. Does this perhaps say something about ourselves and God? If the light is permitted to shine through our lives, it assumes both meaning and significance.
You find it in the South Transept.
