Subject/Title of Window: St. Galahad

Brief Description of Subject: This window is an adaptation of the well known painting by George Frederick Watts, which in turn, had as its inspiration the equally well known poem of "Sir Galahad" by Alfred Tennyson. It was installed to honor the Sir Galahad youth movement at All Saints. Sir Galahad is shown clad in armor and the flowing robe which medieval knights wore. He stands in contemplation with his sword at rest while his charger waits nearby.

Below him is the symbol of the Holy Grail veiled in white samite, a heavy silk material interwoven with gold. The Grail emits rays of light, symbolic of truth, surrounded by flames of divine zeal. The third and fourth lines of Tennyson's poem have been used for the inscription:
"My strength is as the strength of ten, because my heart is pure."

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
