Chartres - stained glass windows - 11.jpg
Our Lady of Chartres Cathedral, Chartres, France. South Transept Windows. The central lancet beneath the rose shows the Virgin carrying the infant Christ. Either side of this are four lancets showing the four evangelists sitting on the shoulders of four Prophets. This window was a donation of the Mauclerc family, the Counts of Dreux-Bretagne, who are depicted with their arms in the bases of the lancets.
