Completed in 1962, the center of “Church Triumphant” features God the Father, robed in a mantle of brilliant gold, holding the Lamb of God in his left hand. Surrounding the throne are symbols of the Four Evangelists: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
Radiating outward from the center are images of angels and saints. Instead of attempting an objective representation of St. John’s vision of heaven, the window articulates its expression through a formal composition of symbolic imagery and a richly evocative modulation of color.
The 24-foot window, designed by Joseph G. Reynolds Jr. and fabricated by Wilbur H. Burnham Studio, contains nearly 10,000 piece of hand-blown glass.
