JUBILEE MUSEUM EXHIBIT
Faith: A Liturgical Stained GlassWindows Exhibition,
at the JubileeMuseums new gallery, the Fra Angelico
gallery, is on view from now through November 15, 2015.The exhibition features 12 stained glass windows rescued from various
churches, chapels and orphanages. Their beauty illuminates the strength and importance
of stained glass windows as an art form and as a way of teaching our faith. Through
the centuries, stained glass windows were intended to be didactic, literally
illustrating the Bible to the faithful, many of whom were illiterate: Stained glass is, basically, a Christian art, it had no existence until the Christian era. It is the
art form which could be said to have profoundly distinguished Christian
churches For more information please visit
the JubileeMuseum and CatholicCulturalCenters website at www.jubileemuseum.org or call
614-600-0054. A suggested donation of $10 per person is greatly appreciated.
