Immanuel Chapel, Virginia Theological Seminary

Virginia Theological Seminary, Alexandria, Virginia


'Designed by artist Brian Clarke, the three windows feature symbols central to the Episcopal faith: a dove, oak leaves, and the parable of the sower stained-glass window in Canterbury Cathedral, the Mother Church of the worldwide Anglican Communion.' – Virginia Theological Seminary

"The dove, almost moving at high speed, hovers over the baptismal font on the west wing; the oak leaves, representing the Father, the genesis of all that is, sits dignified in the north transept; and the parable of the sower from Canterbury Cathedral as it is refracted by the light onto the ground of the Cathedral represents the power of the Incarnation mediated to us through Canterbury to the Episcopal Church in the United States." – the Very Reverend Ian S. Markham.
