Brief Description of Subject: John is shown in the central lancet bearing his sign, the chalice and serpent. According to tradition, he was condemned to death by the Emporor Domitian by being ordered to drink a cup of poison. However, when John took the cup the poison departed from it in the form of a serpent which fell dead at this feet. Below him at the bottom of the central lancet is his traditional symbol, the eagle.

The medallion in the left lancet shows him as a young man writing his Gospel with its sublime language and imagery. The medallion in the right lancet shows him as an old man on the Isle of Patmos writing down his visions in Revelation.
"Shed upon your Church, O Lord, the brightness of your light, that we, being illumined by the teaching of your apostle and evangelist John, may so walk in the light of your truth, that at length we may attain to the fullness of eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever."

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
