Brief Description of Subject: St. Elizabeth was noted for her kindness in coming down from her castle and feeding the needy in her country during times of hardship.
The border is built up on the motif of Wheat, which symbolizes the bread which she would give to the poor.
The castle tower appears on her shield. This is one of her symbols.

Roses appear at the bottom as a symbol of sacrificial  love. Also the bottom are three little crowns, and the next to them the three things that character St. Elizabeth, namely virgin, wife, and queen.

The Beatitude “Blessed are the Merciful” is seen near the bottom of the window since warmth of heart in sacrificial devotion was her first was her first characteristics.

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.
