The Magdalene Window

Like all cathedrals, St Peter's has many stained glass windows. Many of these are traditional and were made in the late 1800's and early 1900's.

The Magdalene Window is contemporary; installed in 2001. A publication from the cathedral describes it as follows: The Magdalene Window acknowledges and celebrates the role of women in the Scriptures, in the history of the Church and in the forefront of social change in South Australia.

It was designed by David Wright, a glass artist from Melbourne.

I love it!!! That's how it should be. Women have played a big part in religion, politics, history, culture etc. I'm glad that this window celebrates that.
