Brief Description of Subject: From “The Identification and Meaning of the Stained Glass Medallions, First Presbyterian Church, Dearborn, Michigan”
In the Treasure Chest
The mystery of the butterfly and the seed turning into a flower has long symbolized the great mystery of the Christian faith - Resurrection. Both symbolize change. “Behold, I tell you a great mystery! We will not all die, but we will all be changed - in a moment, in a twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet.”
1 Corinthians 15:35-37

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
