Ludwig’s Monday Window Challenge: August 16, 2021

I don’t know if this is supposed to be a representation of Christ or an Old Testament prophet. Jesus Christ is typically depicted with a triradiate nimbus; that is, a hallo that emits three rays from the top and sides. That being said, I think it a beautiful window and it makes me think of God. Isn’t that what it is supposed to do? This is the last of the stained glass windows that I photographed during my brief visit to Lewisburg, Pennsylvania in June.

All of the recent stained glass windows are from the same church- a Methodist Church, at that. Across the street from this temple is a Baptist Church and it too is adorned with lovely, representational stained glass windows. It has been my observation that most Protestant churches shy away from this kind of artwork. Most Baptist churches that I’ve visited, if they had stained glass, it was abstract.

Lewisburg is a small town in Central Pennsylvania. It is home to Bucknell University and a big, Federal prison. It is in the Susquehanna Valley and surrounded by dense, lush forests. While it is a bit remote, it is accessible from major highways and it is far from a cultural wasteland. They have an annual art fair to which much energy and attention is devoted. Besides the University, there is a large auditorium/concert hall nearby in the city of Williamsport. It is a charming place in the Amish heartland. It is definitely worth visiting.

I liked this window because of the Beware of Dog sign!
I’ve never been to Sunny’s Deli, but I like their signage.
One of the many office buildings that have sprung up in Annapolis since the turn of the century!
I still have one or two photos of stained glass that I’ve yet to post!
