notes from a small island

Saint

This window has always fascinated me - why, I wonder, does a parish church on our small island dedicated to St Olave, have a window dedicated to St Wenceslas? It seems to be an illustration from the song; perhaps it was someone's favourite carol...


St Olaves 9

Comments

It's a lovely window, and one of my favorite holiday carols. Maybe the person who purchased the window was from Bohemia originally?

- Erulisse (one L)
Possibly - there is no information to say who donated it, that I could see.

It is a nice window - as is the lower one for the Mothers' Union. but is is difficult to make that one out with the flowers in the way.
It looks like Victorian stained glass? I imagine you must be right about it being a favourite song. A nice response to the prompt.
Thank you. I would think, yes, Victorian. St Olave's in its current incarnation was built in the 1870s. To be honest it isn't a terribly exciting church apart from St Wenceslas!
