Mary Magdalene Window: 15: Arrival in Provence

Mary Magdalene arrives in Provence. Carrying a book, she steps off a boat with a single mast and sail. In the boat is a bearded and hooded man holding an oar. This differs from the traditional legend, which says she arrived in France on a raft with no sail. Panel 15 of the Mary Magdalene Window, located at the west end of the south aisle, c. 1205-15.
