Crucifixion, with Christ on the cross flanked by Ecclesia and Synagoga, from the stained glass window of the New Alliance, 1215-25, in bay 3, in the ambulatory of Bourges Cathedral or the Cathedrale Saint-Etienne de Bourges, built 1195-1230 in French Gothic style and consecrated in 1324, in Bourges, Centre-Val de Loire, France. The New Alliance window is a typological window, drawing parallels between the Old and New Testaments, specifically with the Passion scenes of Christ carrying the cross, the Crucifixion and the Resurrection with their Old Testament antetypes. 22 of the original 25 medieval stained glass windows of the ambulatory have survived. The cathedral is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Picture by Manuel Cohen
