These four scenes are probably part of the glazing from the Cistercian church at Mariawald, located southwest of Cologne. Here, the Cologne glass painters adapted color to the traditional fondness for colorless glass, so that large areas of saturated color are combined with equally large sections of grisaille (monochrome painting). These windows are stylistically related to the windows in the north aisle of Cologne Cathedral.
Inscription: (on St. Bernard's halo): MONSTRA TAESSE MATREM
(on his mothers halo): SCA ALEIDIS MATER S' BERNARD
(on father's Halo): S'TESSELIN'
