Brief Description of Subject: John Robinson (1576-1625) was pastor of the separatist group of English Pilgrims at Leiden, Holland, where he preached and wrote on the separatists’ position. He encouraged their emigration to America in 1620 but remained at Leiden with most of his congregation. His followers who settled at Plymouth, MA, brought with them the principle of Congregationalism, whereby each church is self-governing.

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 stainedglass@museum.msu.edu
