Panel 08 - The raising of Demetrius of Amasea's Egyptian boy
Description:
Given the general adherence to Gregory of Tours' text throughout this window, the most likely identification of this panel is chapter 3 - the raising of the servant of Demetrius: "Demetrius of Amasea had an Egyptian boy of whom he was very fond, who died of a fever. Demetrius hearing of Andrew's miracles, came, fell at his feet, and besought help. Andrew pitied him, came to the house, held a very long discourse, turned to the bier, raised the boy, and restored him to his master. All believed and were baptized"
