An eagle, the symbol of St John the Evangelist, surrounded by five roundels containing a quotation from the book of Revelation. At the time when the window was made, it was generally believed that the author of the book of Revelation, St John the Divine, was the same person as St John the Evangelist, but this is no longer thought to be the case.
