Twycross, St James, Leicestershire, I, 4a, St Benedict & St Maur

A panel containing glass from St Denis set amongst later glass. On the left a figure of St Benedict. On the right St Maurus, and below Maurus the waving figure of brother Placid. The scene is of St Benedict having a vision of Maurus saving Placid from drowning. The devil above comes from another scene, of St Benedict in a cave being fed by Romanus - one other part of that scene is in panel 3a of this window, but the figure of St Benedict in the cave is in the chapel of Raby Castle in County Durham.
