Assumption of Mary

The Assumption of Mary stained glass window at St. Michael in Old TownThis window is “read” from bottom to top. The stained glass artist uses all three windows similarly to the Ascension window. All are gathered around Mary’s grave. It is filled with lilies, again signifying her purity. The variety of expressions and reactions are the feature for which Franz Mayer is known. He is also most notably known for his colors. This window and the Ascension window show off his creation and use of color.

In the middle going up, Mary is escorted toward heaven by angels and cherubs as the apolstles gaze from below in awe. Their faces show their devotion to the Mother of Jesus.

The Blessed Trinity await her arrival to complete the coronation. She will assume the title of Regina Coeli, Queen of Heaven.
