Stained glass window high up in a small 12th century church near the Monastery of St. John in the Wilderness. (Am I remembering this correctly Dina?)

Perfectly remembered, Robin.

Let the sun shine in on Jerusalem and the hill-country round about her, indeed. A good choice for this day.

Oh great. You reminded me of Hair and now I'll have the sodomy song stuck in my head the rest of the day.

Thanks SO much!

I love the simplicity of the design and the brightness of the glass.

I don't know if I'm more jealous of the gorgeous picture or all of the history that surrounds you. Thank you for sharing.

Interesting window - at first I saw goblets, and thought of 2 white wine goblets and 2 red wine goblets.
...then I realized "cross".

It's beautiful, Robin.

I just love stained windows!!

EG Wow said...

How interesting that stained glass has been placed in windows since at least as far back as the 13th century!

Robin said...

I suspect that the window is far more modern - I doubt a modest chapel would have been able to afford glass that long ago. Dina would probably know better though.
