"The Spirit of God" by Christopher Whall, 1903.

A wide array of characters are depicted with Angels above. The window is divided vertically into "Discipline" "Counsel" and "Valour", with three lights each. Various shields are shown below. Many of the faces are very well executed and lifelike.
Gloucester Cathedral
The Cathedral originated in 678 or 679 with the foundation of an abbey dedicated to Saint Peter. The foundations of the present church were laid by Abbot Serlo (10721104). LinkExternal link
