The window over the chancel is very large. It contains images of a number of the elders of the early church. Each of them is surrounded by text from the Beatitudes.

The North, Rose Window

The Central Light Containing the Star of David

The Jeremia Light

A Poorly Focused Detail of Jeremia

Blessed are the Peacemakers


Blessed are the Poor


Blessed are the Merciful


Blessed are the Pure in Heart



For those who wish to know more about the architect, Cottier, and the context of the building there is a very good monograph on it.   It is Cottier's in Context: Daniel Cottier, William Leiper and Dowanhill Church, Glasgow.  Case Study 3. Historic Scotland, Edinburgh 2011.  ISBN 978 1 84917 052 9.
