Stained Glass of the Church of All Saints, North Street, York: Picture 3(a) THE ST THOMAS WINDOW

This is half way along the north nave aisle and stands above where the medieval altar to St Thomas the Martyr stood. The left-hand lights depict the incredulity of St Thomas Apostle where doubting Thomas plunges his hand into the Lord's wounded side and recognises the risen Saviour. The right light is a standing figure of an archbishop wearing a pallium and holding a cross staff. Although York had its own archbishop saint, William, the window is probably  intended to be for the more popular St Thomas of Canterbury and is probably the window which Reginald Bawtrie, a city merchant, left one hundred shillings to complete in 1429. The window originally included a kneeling image of Bawtrie and of his uncle, Sir John Bawtrie which are in the bottom of the next window.
