A Stained Glass window in Chester Cathedral depicting St Anthony.
Chester suffered badly at the hands of the Parliamentary troops. As a consequence, its stained glass dates mainly from the 19th and 20th centuries
FUJI HS20

Out of interest I looked up what St Anthony is the patron saint of and came up with the following:
American Indians, Amputees, Animals, Asses, Bacon, Basket weavers, Brushmakers, Brazil, Butchers, Eczema, Elderly people, Epileptics, Faith in the Blessed Sacrament, Fisherman, Franciscan Custody of the Holy Land
Gravediggers, Harvests, Hermits, Horses, Lost Articles, Love, Lower animals, Mail, Mariners, Marriage, Oppressed people, Poor people, Portugal, Pregnant women, Shingles, Shipwrecks, Starvation, Sterility, Swineherds
Tigua Indians, Travel hostesses, Travellers and Watermen.
There could well be other things…….

    Beautiful – I love stained glass windows and this is no exception.

  • Thanks Lezvee, me too, I can wander round for hours in churches and sometimes town halls and such just marvelling at the skill and colours. I like them so much I learned how to make them.

    Well done for that!! It must give you a tremendous insight into these windows

  • It gives me a wee bit I guess but I’m a long long way from the skill of the master craftsmen that made this window.
