Stained Glass of the Church of All Saints, North Street, York: Picture 3(c) THE PRICKE OF CONSCIENCE WINDOW
The iconography of this window, unique in Europe, is based on an anonymous Middle English (14th century) poem called the Pricke of Conscience whose text is concerned with the final fifteen days of the world. It is dated from ~1410-1420?, and each panel illustrates a day and paraphrase of that section of the poem is added at the bottom. It is likely that the Henryson and Hessle families paid for the window. The window reads from bottom left to top right and below is a key to the 3 x 6 panels of this dreadful apocalyptic story!.
