Brief Description of Subject: The façade has three doors to enter the Church. The middle one is called the nave door while the others are aisle doors. The nave door is always the largest of the doors. This ornamental window is the tympanum over the front entrance on the epistle aisle side and, as usual, it will be less elaborate than the tympanum over the nave door. This window is identical to the one over the front door on the gospel aisle.

This window was made by the "Detroit Stained Glass Works" , which at that time was owned by Friederichs and Wolfrum.

The MSGC is a constantly evolving database. Not all the data that has been collected by volunteers has been sorted and entered. Not every building has been completely documented.

All images in the Index are either born-digital photographs of windows or buildings or are scans of slides, prints, or other published sources. These images have been provided by volunteers and the quality of the material varies widely.

If you have any questions, additions or corrections, or think you can provide better images and are willing to share them, please contact
