Lower panels. Nicholas Ridley wearing a rochet (white tunic) beneath a chimere (sleeveless black gown) and scarf. In his hand he holds a copy of his book Brief declaration of the Lord’s Supper. The arms at the bottom are of Ridley as Bishop of London, i.e., the arms of the Diocese of London, gules two swords in saltire argent hilts and pommels or (Burke, Bernard, The General Armory of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, p 619. , London, Harrison & Sons) impaled with those of Nicholas Ridley, gules a chevron between three falcons close argent (Burke , op. cit., p 857). The Ridley arms shown here have three pellets on the chevron, as in the arms of Ridley of Park End, Northumberland.

At the top of the window (not shown here) are the arms of Thomas Cranmer as Archbishop of Canterbury. Below the arms is Thomas Cranmer dressed, like Ridley in rochet, chimere and scarf. He holds a copy of the second Prayer Book of Edward VI, on which the present Prayer Book is mainly modelled.
