Subject/Title of Window: Creation

Brief Description of Subject: Depiction of Creation. Moon, stars, waters, fish, light, plants. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” In the first panel we see the swirl of deep blues, the lamps God made to govern the night - the moon and stars strung out like a necklace glowing in the firmament. Below, the waters divide from the vault of heaven and team with fish and while. In the sky are the winged creatures. In the next panel, the larger light governs the day and warms the earth. The many seed-bearing plants grow and multiply over the land. The creation is unfolding - each thing in its true place; and it is good.

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
