Brief Description of Subject: St. Hyacinth (1185 - 1257) was a Dominican monk. When his monastery was attacked he took the ciborium which contained the blessed sacrament and fled but the Virgin Mary told him to take her statue too. By a miracle it turned weightless and he was able to pick it up and carry it to safety. He is the patron saint of weight lifters.

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
