Raphael appears in the book of "Tobit". Tobit had gone blind and sent his son Tobias to collect a debt in a far away town. Tobias obtained a guide who said his name was "Azarias" to help him on this journey. When they reached the destination, Tobias married a woman named Sarah who was tormented by a demon. Azarias expelled the devil. When they returned home, Azarias cured Tobit of his blindness and then told them that he was really the Archangel Raphael who had been sent by God to heal Tobit and Sarah.

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
