Subject/Title of Window: Baptistery

Brief Description of Subject: The upper left hand panel shows the symbol of our Lord's baptism, the escallop shell with water descending from it. The dove, which is shown above, is the symbol of the Holy Spirit which descended on Jesus, empowering him for the ministry ahead of Him. The anchor cross, in the lower part of the panel, refers to the absolute surety of salvation we have through our appropriation of Jesus' resurrection in Baptism: "We have this hope, a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul" (Hebrews 6:19).

A baptismal font filled with water is shown in the upper right hand panel. Above the font the dove of the Holy Spirit is portrayed. The monogram of the first two Greek letters of "Christ", chi (X) and rho (P), are shown in the lower part of the panel.

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
