Window 030 - Saint Sylvester [Pope, contemporary of Constantine]

Note that there are eight small round medallions. Seven of these show Constantine writing one of the seven laws he gave to the Church. The final medallion (upper right) shows him watching the soul of Sylvester ascend; there is nothing on his scroll (has this finally silenced him? - GLS).

Bottom to top, left to right:

• Row 01: Stonemasons as donors: two men carry a stone, at work on cathedral and sculpture, masons' tools.
• Row 02: Sylvester is brought by his mother to priest Cyrinus; Sylvester welcomes Saint Timothy.
• Row 03 (two outer medallions): Saint Timothy executed (story continues clockwise); [events of Row 4 occur, then] Tarquinius chokes on fish bone and dies.
