Completed in 1943, “Christ in Majesty” is the central image seen above the high altar and visible from the far end of the nave. It is the culmination of the Cathedral’s narrative that begins with creation, traces God’s relationship with the Israelites and transitions to the Christian story.
The central lancet of the window features a figure of Christ that is more than twice life-size. His right hand is raised in blessing while his left hand holds the orb, a symbol of divine authority. Kneeling angels adore the triumphant Christ and symbols of Alpha and Omega signify that the beginning and end of all things is in God.
