The first of the four horsemen of the apocalypse appears in this window, riding a white rose and holding a bow and wearing a crown. The second panel shows Christ enthroned with the twenty-four elders with their harps and crowns surrounding Him. The second horseman of the apocalypse is in this window; he is holding a sword and is surrounded by fire and lightning. In the third panel we see Christ receiving the angels of the seven churches. The bottom depicts the third horseman carrying a pair of balances. The final panel sows a woman clothed with the sun, holding the Child. This is symbolic of Mary and Jesus.

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
