Soissons Cathedral

Choir clerestory

w.103:


Date:
c. 1260 - and C19


Reassembled panels including four fine figures of Old Testament figures, reminiscent of the earlier figures at St Remi at Reims and Canterbury (
See the Caviness reference).

Amongst the numerous C19 smaller panels the subjects include the Liberal Arts, the Signs of the Zodiac, the Labours of the Months, a Season and an Elder of the Apocalypse (most of these and the four large figures are thought to have come from the royal abbey of Braine - most of the roundels from its north rose window and the angels from its west rose)
