Medieval stained glass Window of the Gothic Cathedral of Chartres, France - dedicated to the Life of St Mary Magdalen. Central panel - bottom left - Mary meets the angel at Christ's empty tomb (the Quem quaeritis), bottom right - The Noli me tangere, top left - Mary as the Apostola Apostolorum , top right - The Apostles receiving Mary's news . A UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Mary Magdalene was a woman who, according to the four canonical gospels, traveled with Jesus as one of his followers and was a witness to his crucifixion and resurrection. The Gospel of Luke 8:2–3 lists Mary Magdalene as one of the women who traveled with Jesus and helped support his ministry "out of their resources", indicating that she was probably relatively wealthy.

The stained glass windows of Chartres Cathedral are held to be one of the best-preserved and most complete set of medieval stained glass, notably celebrated for their colours, especially their cobalt blue. They cover 2600 square metres in total and consist of 172 bays illustrating biblical scenes, the lives of the saints and scenes from the life of trade guilds of the period
