Description by Patron

ABBOT SUGER OF SAINT DENIS: ON WHAT WAS DONE IN HIS ADMINISTRATION

XXXIV

We also had painted, by the hands of many masters sought out in various nations, a splendid variety of new windows below and above,
....

In another window, where the pharaoh's daughter finds Moses in the basket,
Moses in the basket is that child
Whom the church, the royal maiden, nurses with holy mind.
