Abstract

The goal of this project is to study the meaning behind the stained-glass windows at the Armenian Church of Our Savor in Worcester Massachusetts. The history of these beautiful windows has taught us that the combination of colorful lights not only provides a mesmerizing atmosphere inside the church, but also a lesson for those who believe through symbolism and metaphors. After interviewing the pastors of the church and analyzing the features and figures drawn in every glass, and upon analyzing the answers received from the surveys, we discovered that no more than ten percent of the survey participants understand the educational meaning of the stained-glass windows and each symbolism hidden in them.
