Melchisedec, by Edward Burne-Jones, the figure on the furthest left in the upper middle row of the East Window of All Saints, Jesus Lane, Cambridge, by Morris & Co., 1866. Most of the figures in this window (twelve out of twenty, including "Our Lord Enthroned" of 1865) were designed by Edward Burne-Jones, and this is another of his that was used here for the first time. Next to it is Ford Madox Brown's St Louis, the French king, designed for Cheddleton in 1864 (see Tricker et al., n.p.).

Next to St Louis is another by Burne-Jones, this time originally designed in 1863 for Bradford. This is David with his harp. Then comes (in the middle above) Brown's King Edward, designed for Cheddleton in 1864 like St Louis. On the far right is Burne-Jones's Judas Maccabaeus, the heroic Jewish military leader, designed for this window in 1866.
