Crucifixion Window, Romsey Abbey, Hampshire. This window in St Ethelflaeda’s Chapel in the retrochoir is one of the earlier Victorian windows to have been placed in the Abbey, and dates from 1870. There is no attempt here to match the style of the crucified Christ with that of the Saxon Roods, but then the smaller Rood was not in its current location in 1870, so the two would not have been side by side at the time. Robert Eberhard lists this and the Nativity Window as being by Clayton and Bell, making “stylistic attributions.” [Click on all the images to enlarge them.]
