Resurrection of Christ
Stained-glass windows played a significant role in defining the effect of the medieval church interiors. The Museum's most extensive set of windows comes from the Minorite Church in Regensburg. In the first half of the 14th century, the church's choir was renewed and received 14-meter-high window openings. The centre of the new choir glazing was the window with scenes from the Passion of Christ. This culminated in the scene of resurrection of Christ from the dead. Two angels are praying to Christ, whose wounds from the crucifixion are clearly marked. The guards, who are rendered much smaller according to their subordinate role, have fallen asleep.
