Mary and Martha (of Bethany)

Sir Edward Burne-Jones (1833-1898)

Morris & Co.

After 1897

North porch, east side

All Saints', Leek

The window is inscribed "mary eliza shaw at rest 8 april 1897." Could this have been a relation of the architect? At any rate, here was someone remembered for the virtues, both domestic and spiritual, that the two New Testament sisters represent between them.
