The Prophet Jonah

Early 12th century
Stained glass
Augsburg Cathedral

Wearong a cape vaguely similar to a bishop's cope, the prophet stands above the mouth of a stylized fish. His scroll reads RURSUM VIDEBO TEMPLUM SANCTUM DOMINI, "Yet would I look again upon the holy temple of the Lord." The words are from Jonah 2:5, in Jonah's psalm of thanksgiving after his release from the great fish.
