Medieval church iconography - devotion to Jesus

Artwork in Cornish churches illustrates devotion to God in the medieval period, paticularly portraits of Jesus. The passion of Christ is depicted in a late 15th century stained glass window in the north-east chapel of the church of St James and St Kew .  Chapels were dedicated to him as Christ, Jesus, or the Saviour.  In Cornwall these included ones at Padstow and Poruan near Fowey.
