She is holding the tiara of Pope Gregory XI in her hands. The Pope was living in Afignon and she insisted that he return to Rome where he belonged. The Pope did in fact return to Rome where soon after he died. The bottom of the window shows Jesus standing with a palm branch over his right shoulder. He wears a crown of thorns on his head and is being mocked as King of the Jews by the soldiers. The background of the window is white. Little gold circles border the frame of the entire window.

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
