St. Catherine of Alexandria in Christ Church

Christ Church Cathedral has two windows depicting St. Catherine of Alexandria. The one on the left is medieval glass. The one on the right is from a window by Edward Burne-Jones. It is said that Burne-Jones's model for the face of St. Catherine was Edith Liddell, the younger sister of Alice. Unfortunately, her face is unclear in this photograph because of the brilliant light that was shining through the window.
