Tours Cathedral

w.214 - 3rd quarter C13

The St Eustache window


 A saint bishop


 The emperor forces them to worship his idol

They refuse and are committed to the flames

He becomes a knight and goes to battle

2 soldiers play a game with a chequer board

His wife finds him 

Eustache is found by envoys of the Emperor ....

 ... and taken to him

... in the boat the crew steal his wife

He is forced to continue without her

A lion and a wolf take his children 

but they are saved and the animals killed 

Placidus is baptised - & becomes Eustache

His wife and children

They are forced to flee ...

... and travel overseas

While chasing a deer ....

Placidus encounters Christ
