Left-hand light inscription Right-hand light inscription

Inscription. The light-on-dark “Gothic” font of the biblical quotations is characteristic of Fouracre windows.

Mylor, Chancel north, left-hand predella: Christ stills the waves. Grampound, Nave south 1, right-hand light: Christ stills the waves.

On the left is the left-hand predella of Mylor Chancel north, inserted in 1882, and on the right, the right-hand light of this window. The designs are very similar, except that the seated figures have been packed more closely (and one has been omitted altogether) in the later Grampound version, because of the narrower aspect ratio of the light. In the Grampound version, the face of the disciple immediately below Christ’s right hand appears to have been replaced with a photographic likeness, probably of the dedicatee, Charles Jackson.
