Viewing the History Windows

As we describe how to view the ten History windows, we will concentrate on three elements: first is the symbol in the central window of the Triplet, just below the trefoil; next is the great scene in the trefoil; last is the small symbol near the top of the center pane of each trefoil. These elements give the primary message of the window.

The details of other elements are described and discussed in Appendix L – Elements of a History Window and Appendix H – Inscriptions..

As you look at each window, you should look first at the scene in the center window below the trefoil, which in many cases refers to the past, or what has come before.

Next the three panes of the trefoil tell the story of the window.

Finally, the small symbol near the top of the center pane of the trefoil points to the future.

Variations of this design exist in some of the windows.

In presentations of the entire series of windows this procedure will be followed in the discussion of each window, moving in waves from bottom to top, then again, bottom to top, to understand the meaning of the windows.
