Stained glass windows

Stained glass windows are best seen from the inside, obviously, so a thread on stained glass windows seems most appropriate in here. Feel free to post pictures of stained glass windows in churches or other places, talk about who designed the windows or some artistic influences, or anything else on the topic.

I'll start things of with this stained glass window of the Nativity scene in St. Peter's Cathedral, our cathedral here in Wilmington that serves as the seat of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Wilmington.

These stained glass windows are on the side facades of Our Lady of Victory Basilica, a Roman Catholic church in Lackawanna, NY.

These windows are in St. John's Episcopal Church in Franklin, PA. They were installed between 1901 and 1917. St. John's is notable for having a complete set of Tiffany glass windows and mosaics, most of which are seen here.

Here's a sampling of the stained glass windows in Basilica, a Roman Catholic church in San Francisco (located next door to the old California mission). The windows depict the architecture of the California missions, the patron saints of the particular missions, and founding dates.
