St Ethelflaeda's Chapel - The Crucifixion

In St Ethelflaeda’s Chapel is a Clayton and Bell window showing the crucifixion. This dates from the 1870s, so is one of the first to have been placed in the Abbey. It is interesting to compare the dead Christ shown here with the living welcoming Christ on the cross, depicted on the Saxon rood in St Anne’s chapel nearby.

The six-foil at the top of the window shows the Pascal Lamb. The symbol on the right, which looks like a combination of a P and an X, is Chi Rho, the first letters of Christ in Greek. To the left, IHC is the Latin abbreviation of Jesus.

Continue a few steps into St Mary's Chapel.
