South Rose Window (c.1260)

The south rose window, donated by King St. Louis and installed c.1260. Its general themes are the New Testament, the Triumph of Christ, and the symbolic number four. Repaired more than once over the centuries, many of the panes are out of their original order. In the third and fourth circle are scenes from the Life of St. Matthew that date from the 12th century.
