Chagall’s stained glass windows

A special stop in Mainz was at St-Stephan-Kirche to see its beautiful stained glass windows created by the Russian Jewish artist, Marc Chagall. These nine magnificent windows are predominantly blue, and serve as a symbol of Jewish–Christian reconciliation.

The church is perched on probably the only hill in Mainz, and Kirusan was quite pleased we found it. He has shown visitors around Mainz in the past and never seemed to be able to track down the entrance. All the pictures in the slideshow feature the windows.
