Fordham University Church The Windows I


by Dan Venturi


The stained glass windows in Fordham's church represent a tradition going back to Western middle ages, but are significant examples of 19th century stained glass in their own right.


The Gifts of Louis Philippe 

The six windows lining the nave were originally gifts of King Louis Philippe of France to Archbishop Hughes for Old St. Patrick's Cathedral. They did not fit, however, and were given to the seminary chapel. The windows are wonderful examples of nineteenth century realism. They depict the four evangelists and St. Peter and St. Paul and they were created in Sevres, France by a workshop that has been tied to the earliest stages of the Gothic revival.
