  1. I really enjoy the photos of all the great architectural details you post. Looking forward to more and I’m curious about the date of this particular window if anyone knows. Thank you!

  2. According to the pamphlet in the church, this window (one of four of its kind in this church) was brought over from Europe. The pamphlet says the window is “medieval”, but I doubt the accuracy of that, because the style is Baroque (which postdates the medieval period by a couple of centuries), nor Gothic or Romanesque (nor much less Byzantine).
