Subject/Title of Window: Resurrection

Brief Description of Subject: The themes of victory, of new life and regeneration are defined in this window. The risen Christ is represented here. Above him is the triumphant lamb with its victorious banner. In the background is the trinity triangle in a circle of water symbolizing the sacrament of Baptism, and spring flowers which is a sign of rebirth and renewal. Below is an open tomb symbolizing the physical resurrection of Christ. The broken chains represent his victory over sin and death. The large fish at the bottom represents the foretelling of his death and resurrection.


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
