Replica of a medieval panel

Replica of

Painted and leaded stained glass

This is a replica of a window from All Saints Church in North Street, York. It shows one of the panels from the ‘Corporal Acts of Mercy’ window. The Corporal Acts of Mercy were practices that the catholic church considered meritorious in Christian ethics. The seven practices are:

  1. To feed the hungry.
  2. To give water to the thirsty.
  3. To clothe the naked.
  4. To shelter the homeless.
  5. To visit the sick.
  6. To visit the imprisoned, or ransom the captive.
  7. To bury the dead.

This panel shows number 3 – to clothe the naked.

I made this panel at the end of my training award with Barley Studio who are also based in York.
