Adoration of the Magi

Photo: © Dombauarchiv Köln, A. Wolff

The spatial and spiritual centre of the series of Kings is the axial window, which shows the Magi kneeling before Mary and the Christ Child. Above them are depictions of Christ’s royal predecessors and Old Testament prophets who represent worldly power and spiritual order respectively. This, the highest ranking window in the choir clerestory, was donated by the Cathedral Chapter.
