Description1e: Bishop Skiralw The donor of teh window, Bishop Walter Skirlaw, is depicted in this panel. He prays before an altar which bears his shield of arms. Skirlaw was Bishop of Durham from 1388 to 1406, and died before the Great East Window was completed. As he donated money for the window, he is depicted in a prominent position; in the central panel of the lowest row beneath Christ the Judge, (panel 2e). After extensive discussion with the East Window Advisory Group, it was decided that the small, out-of-scale, and back-to-front head of Skirlaw should be removed. Conservators painted a new head for the Bishop, using the repeated cartoon of the faces ot the other archbishops in the row.
