The DNA window at the King’s College Chapel at the Strand

Here is another take home item of the recent EMGS 2011 meeting at the King’s College. Located in the apse there are 5 topics as originally conceived by Gilbert Scott: Christ in the carpenter’s shop, Christ and the lawyers, Christ healing the sick, Christ teaching the people and The Cruxification. While that may all be appropriate for today’s Sunday before Eastern, why is there a blog entry here?

The “teaching window” has a unique scene as we see the double helix and some chromosomes looking back to the College’s history of discovery of DNA through the work of Rosalind Franklin (and Maurice Wilkins).
