Roots Of Knowledge Panel K3


The setting for this window’s scene reflects the desctruction and ignorance that was widespread in Europe after the fall of the Roman Empire, but also depicts the illuminated individuals who selflessly devoted themselves to the preservation of knowledge and recovery of society. Among them is an anonymous Sri Lankan man faithfully producing the coveted cinnamon spice and the Venerable Bede, an eighth-century Anglo-Saxon monk and the “Father of English History.”
