Brief Description of Subject: This window, located in the baptistery, depicts Luke's version of the Baptist of Christ on the Jordan River.

"Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened, And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased." Luke 3:21 - 22 (KJV)

All of the Trinity is present in this scene --- the Father (hand pointing to his "beloved Son"), the Son (Jesus), and the Holy Ghost (dove).

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.
