A large window of three lights, with three smaller windows above. In the centre panel, Christ rises from the tomb in glory. Around his feet, the Roman soldiers are still sleeping. Above his head are Christ’s own words: “I am the Resurrection and the Life”. In the left-hand light, Christ blesses Mary Magdalen who is kneeling before Him. He carries a staff from which flutters a pennant marked with a cross in red….The scroll above his head reads: “I ascend unto my Father and your Father”.
The right-hand light shows the angel greeting the Three Marys. His garments are white and he carries the palm of victory. Mary Magdalen kneels before Him, with her jar of oil. Behind her, the Virgin Mary stands in profile, looking at the angel, hands clasped on her breast. Behind her again, there is a glimpse of the third Mary. The words of the angel appear above in a scroll: “He is not here, He is risen”.
The small panels above show Christ the King and two angels in adoration.
This window is particularly remarkable for its vibrant colour contrasts and for the Pre-Raphaelite depiction of Mary Magdalen in the right-hand light. The Risen Christ and the Roman soldiers in the centre panel strongly resemble the same figures in the St Brelade’s Church Resurrection window.
