Brief Description of Subject: St. Jude Thaddeus is the author of the Epistle bearing his name and may have been the brother of James. Little is known about him, but we are told that he and St. Simon worked together and were martyred together. Hence, they have the same day on the calendar (October 28). St. Jude is shown holding an inverted cross (which is believed to be the manner of his death) and in the medallion we have a figure of a small ship, his traditional symbol.

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
