HARRISON ST. STAIRS
To confirm to his disciples (Peter, John & James) that he was indeed the Messiah, Jesus was transfigured on the mountain. He appeared with Moses on his right holding the stone tablets, and on his left, Elijah was pictured with the Sacred Scroll, suggesting that he was a prophet. While on the mountain, a cloud, a symbol of the unseen God, descended over them. God said: "This is my beloved Son, hear him," Luke 9:35.

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 donald20@msu.edu
