Esther, St. Front

Esther 5-10

Rather than revoke the pogrom order against the Jews, the Jews are told they may defend themselves against aggressors. They do this most enthusiastically, and then turn it into an annual holiday – “we’ve slaughtered our enemies … let’s have a picnic”

This window is in the Cathedral church of St. Front, Perigueux, France.
