The Creator God is symbolized by the Hand of God. The two tablets on which are written the Ten Commandments represent the Law of God. The two crossed keys are a traditional symbol for the apostle Peter. Jesus said “I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven. The five-pointed stars above and below are symbolic of the Epiphany, the manifested nature of God.

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
