Brief Description of Subject: Confessor, 1526-1581 The Visitation St. Louis Bertrand is standing and is clothed in the Dominican habit. He is pictured holding a gun. The top of the gun bears the resemblance of a crucifix. When a man approached him in an assassination attempt St. Louis Bertrand made the sign of the cross over the gun and immediately it was transformed into a crucifix. The bottom of the window shows Mary visiting her cousin, Elizabeth. The two women bless each other’s pregnancy. “And when Elizabeth heard the gretting of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb”... Elizabeth exclaimed...”blessed is the fruit of your womb.” (Luke 1:41-42) The background of the window is light blue. There is a light blue border around the entire frame of the window with little gold triangles around the interior edges of the border. There are thiry-three triangles in the edges of the border.

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
