Window Shape: 6 (gothic arched, over 2 vertical sections)

Subject/Title of Window: St. Luke

Brief Description of Subject: St. Luke is portrayed in the central lancet with a caduceus, the symbol of medicine, referring to the tradition that he was a physician. The winged ox, his usual symbol, is at the bottom of the central lancet. He is shown as a painter in the medallion in the right lancet. According to legend, he painted portraits of Jesus and the Virgin Mary, which converted many people. Luke is also the surpreme artist with words, since his Gospel alone contains the traditional and beloved nativity narrative and many of the best known parables, including the Parables of the Good Samaritan and the Prodigal Son. In the medallion in the left lancet he is shown visiting Paul, his companion of many missionary journeys, while Paul was imprisoned.
"Almighty God, who inspired your servant Luke the physician to set forth in the Gospel the love and healing power of your Son: Graciously continue in your Church this love and power to heal, to the praise and glory of your Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever."

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
