n22 2 upper. Theodore is represented in pontifical robes, with a crimson cope and dark blue tunicle, holding in his right hand the Primatial cross, and an organ in the left; emblems typical of his authority in restoring ecclesiastical unity in England and of the introduction of the Western form of Church music.


n22 2 lower. Aidan is clothed in dark monastic dress; his head shows the Celtic tonsure, by his side is a hart, the emblem of ascetic solitude; in one hand he holds a book. Wilfrid is dressed in full episcopal vestments, with mitre, and he holds in his hands a book and the Pall, symobolic of his appeal to Rome, and readiness to accept the Papal jurisdiction.
