Resurrecting Euphrasia


This mid 15th century window in the church of Saint-Taurin, Evreux, contains six scenes telling part of the legend of his life. This first panel tells the part of the legend where he resurrected a girl that had been burnt to death by a devil, on being brought back to life she was apparently unmarked.
