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 12: A dream in which Saint Peter and Saint Paul tell Constantine to recall Sylvester, who has fled due to the persecutions; Sylvester receives message from Constantine.
• Center 13: Baptism of Constantine
• Row 14: Sylvester and Constantine prepare foundation for Saint Peter's church in Rome; Sylvester and Constantine return by emperor's chariot.
