Clothed with the Sun
In Revelation, the final book in the New Testament, St John describes his vision of 'a woman robed with the sun'. This was often taken to represent the Virgin Mary.
This stained glass window shows Mary as a radiant figure with a crown and halo, shining in the glory of the sun's rays.
