Subject/Title of Window: Baptism

Brief Description of Subject: John the Baptist is performing our Lord’s baptism. The dove shows the father’s approval. The cross in John’s left arm is a mystery. The anchor is a symbol of our Blessed Savior, form Herbrews 6:19.

The top symbol ”Unity of the trinity or shield of the blessed trinity” is represented by three circles, father, son, and Holy Spirit. Connecting the circles, inside the double lines, are the words “is not”. The center circle is God connected to the outer circles by the word “is”. Reading it “Father is not son, son is not holy spirit, holy spirit is not father.” “Son is God, Father is God, Holy Spirit is God.”

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 donald20@msu.edu
