Liberality, Praise, Grace

Window of two lancets with a round tracery window.

This window depicts the personification of Liberality, Praise and Grace. (2 Corinthians 9:6-15) Liberality is personified by a priest holding the flaming torch of justice, adorned with a heart decorated with a cross. He is also holding a basket of fruit. Praise is personified by a young man holding a harp. (possibly King David) The banner of Grace is held by an Angel.
