Subject/Title of Window: The Great Commission

Brief Description of Subject: Three narthex windows represent Christ’s commandment to his disciples, “Go ye into all the world.” The center window shows Christ radiant in glory, one hand raised in benediction, other hand outstretched toward all mankind; above and below are stylized flames symbolizing the Holy Spirit. Rays spread out into two side panels symbolizing power and influence of Christ and varied responses of humanity. The figure of Christ seen radiant in glory, dominates the central window. One hand is raised in benediction, the other is outstretched toward all mankind in the great commission,”Go ye into all the world.” Both above and below the figure are stylized flames which have an affinity to the Holy Spirit. The ever widening rays and swirling shapes symbolize the power and influence of Christ.

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
