SU1429 : Prisoners of conscience window, Salisbury Cathedral

Prisoners of conscience window, Salisbury Cathedral
Prisoners of conscience window, Salisbury Cathedral
This window is in the Trinity Chapel at the eastern end of the cathedral. It was designed by the French artist Gabriel Loire and installed in 1980. Of the five lights or lancets, the one on the right represents modern prisoners of conscience who suffered from self questioning and solitude, whereas the one on the left represents those who were certain. The three central lancets depict Jesus Christ as a prisoner of conscience, with the trial by Pontius Pilate at left, mocked by soldiers with a crown of thorns at right, and the crucifixion in centre, with Mary at Christ's feet.

The general appearance of the window is blue, and I have to say that, even when looking at it close up, it is extremely hard to discern the depictions the artist intended.
