Neville Window: Upper

This window depicts the great multitude of the heavenly host without number, with palm branches and symbols of God's might and power that are mentioned in the Book of Revelation. Notice that the saint on the right has removed the crown from his own head.


        "After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people, and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice: 'Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.'"

-Revelation 7:9-10


        "The 24 elders... lay their crowns before the throne of God and say, 'You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.'"

-Revelation 4:10-11



The Neville Window was presented to the glory of God and in memory of General John Neville (1731-1803), Winifred Odham Neville (1736-1797), Major Isaac Craig (1741-1826), and Amelia Neville (Craig) (1763-1849).
