God's covenant with Noah, shown here with his wife. "Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life." (Genesis 9:14-15). Detail of the Noah Window, located at the west end of the north aisle. Like most of the windows in Chartres Cathedral, it dates from the early 13th century.
"New Beginnings" is one of three stained glass windows designed to share the importance of the covenants between God, the Jewish people, and all life. Touching on the past, the present, and the future, these covenants set forth the path to the fulfillment of our destiny, as they are seen being passed from generation to generation.
