Stained Glass Medallion Windows – A Collection


There are many medallion stained glass windows in Rockingham County, Va. The Harrisonburg
city churches do not emphasize this style of window and are more ornate. Most medallions are part of
larger windows. More information about the Rockingham County stained windows may be found in the
books “Stained Glass Windows in the Churches of Harrisonburg” and “Stained Glass Windows in the
Churches of Rockingham”.

For purposes of this booklet, medallion windows are those that are rounded in shape and typically
biblical subjects are used. Another term for this style window is a “Roundel”.

In the history of stained glass windows, a medallion window may be defined various ways, and
may not be round. Most medallions use a painted glass technique to provide the needed detail.

Selected medallion windows from other locations than Rockingham County have been included to
exhibit other interpretations of these subjects and the beauty they exhibit. More descriptions of the
symbolism are at the end of this document.

The window shown on the cover is not a typical medallion window and is shown as an example of
the lovely small stained insets included in the larger windows. Lilies represent purity. (Trinity Reformed
