Sailing the seas of glass

One of the beautiful old windows in St. John's Episcopal Church in Gloucester

About Matthew Green

I am an origami artist and photographer (and teacher of both), a blogger, a freelance translator, former philosophy professor, and I love to sing. You can see my photos on Flickr and buy prints of some of them on Fine Art America. You can find me on Instagram, Twitter (@mehjg), and in various and sundry other social media sites on the web.

    Another unique window, Father Green. Thanks for posting it.

  2. Ann Kennedy says:

    I really enjoy the photos of all the great architectural details you post. Looking forward to more and I’m curious about the date of this particular window if anyone knows. Thank you!

  3. According to the pamphlet in the church, this window (one of four of its kind in this church) was brought over from Europe. The pamphlet says the window is “medieval”, but I doubt the accuracy of that, because the style is Baroque (which postdates the medieval period by a couple of centuries), nor Gothic or Romanesque (nor much less Byzantine).
