In the first chapter, we explore how the Holy Tear was displayed in the north aisle of the church over a well that linked the Holy Tear to the foundation legend of the abbey.
In the second chapter, Emily Lindbloom reconstructs the route the pilgrim would traverse in the sixteenth century when the a relic window was constructed near the Holy Tear armoire in the north aisle. As the pilgrim drew near, they encountered narratives in stained glass that portrayed the Lazarus story as well as the donation scene of the Holy Tear. The first glass transported the pilgrim to the Holy Land and the second authenticated the presence of a Christological relic at the abbey.
