Subject/Title of Window: St. Mark

Brief Description of Subject: St. Mark is depicted in the central lancet holding the book and pen of an Evangelist. Below him at the bottom of the lancet is his traditional symbol.

The medallion in the right lancet relates the story of his missionary journey with Barnabas following Barnabas' estrangment from Paul (Acts 15:39). Jerusalem is symbolized at the top of the medallion as the seat of authority for bonafide missionaries, and to which they returned to report.

The medallion in the left lancet deals with a previous visit to Cyrus, St. Barnabas' home country. On that occasion Paul and Barnabas had taken mark along to assist them and Mark is shown preaching the good news in the synagog of Salamis (Acts 13:5).
"Almighty God, by the hand of Mark the evangelist you have given to your Church the Gospel of Jesus Christ the Son of God: We thank you for this witness, and pray that we may be firmly grounded in its truth; 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
