St. Frideswide 'The Ship of Souls'  1859

shipofsouls4.jpg (65459 bytes)  The Ship of Souls is part of  Burne-Jones's St. Frideswide window in Oxford's Christ Church Cathedral. 'Flashed' ruby glass is used for the souls in the ship. ( Thick pieces of red glass would be too dark to let in the light, so glassmakers 'flashed' a thin layer of red glass onto white glass.)


Oxford Cathedral has four  other windows by Burne-Jones, all designed   for William Morris, not for Powell's.
