Brief Description of Subject: "And behold there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from Heaven and came and rolled back the stone, and sat upon it. His apperance was like lightening and his raiment white as snow. And for fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men ... But the angel said to the women, 'Do not be afraid; for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for he has risen, as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.'" Matthew 28

Jesus, the risen Lord, stands above the vault in which he head been buried. Three Roman guards are fast asleep, but still grasp their spears and shields. A fourth guard has suddenly awakened. Blinded by the radiance of the risen Lord, this soldier shields his face in terror.

From "May All Who Enter This Chapel-in-the-Woods Rejoice and Be Exceeding Glad in The Love of Jesus Christ Our Lord," by Starr Commonwealth For Boys, Albion, Michigan.

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
