Subject/Title of Window: St. Ann Window

Brief Description of Subject: St. Ann is shown in the traditional manner standing alongside of the kneeling Virgin Mary who is studying a manuscript. This represents the insertion of the Virgin and thus Saint Ann has been used as a Patron Saint of Teachers and Art of Learning.
The Lily grows next to the Virgin while in the borders appears the white Morning-Glory the proper symbol for the early awakening and lily like beauty of the Virgin.

The appropriate text used is Blessed are the Pure of Heart and could refer to the general tone of the subject manner imparted to the Virgin by Saint Ann.

In the right hand corner at the bottom appears the symbol of Saint Ann; namely the Gateway because she served to bring the Virgin May into the world.

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 donald20@msu.edu
