Sheffield Cathedral – The Lantern Tower

At the west end of the nave is the Lantern roof typifying the Crown of Thorns, coming down into the Cathedral, reminding us of the suffering of Christ. The glass (1998) by Amber Hiscott is an abstract interpretation of how resurrection and the Holy Spirit (golds and reds) transforming human conflict and struggles (blues and violets) and leading to healing and growth (greens). The Lantern, with its lively colours, illuminates a joyous pathway to God.
