Brief Description of Subject: St. James the Less (or the little), was first Bishop of Jerusalem and directed the first council of the Christian Church there, in the year 50. He carries a fuller’s bat, which is the traditional manner of his death. The symbol of the windmill describes his character. He was slow in accepting the divinity of our Lord. However, when he finally accepted that faith, he was extremely zealous in working for it. Like a windmill, the harder the winds of adversity blew, the harder he labored for Christ. His day is May 1st.

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
