Long Description:

The stained glass, grisailles, came out of the Latteux-Bazin workshops, in Mesnil-Saint- Firmin in the Oise. Those of the choir were then replaced in 1877, this time by a local glassmaker, R. Gamay de Saint-Omer.

They appear, from left to right, Saint Honorine, Saint Jean Baptiste and Saint Athanase. It is unusual for the patron saint of the church not to be depicted on the axial window, but it would seem that the choice of the saints is a tribute to the donors who helped finance the canopies.

Les vitraux, des grisailles, sont sorties des ateliers Latteux-Bazin, de Mesnil-Saint-Firmin dans l’Oise. Ceux du chœur ont ensuite été remplacés en 1877, cette fois-ci par un verrier local, R. Gamay de Saint-Omer.

Ils figurent, de gauche à droite, sainte Honorine, saint Jean Baptiste et saint Athanase. Il est inhabituel que le patron de l’église ne soit pas représenté sur le vitrail axial, mais il semblerait que le choix des saints soit un hommage aux donateurs ayant permis de financer les verrières.
