About Tiffany's Swedenborgian Angels

These windows were originally created in the late 1800s by Louis Tiffany for a Swedenborgian church in Cincinnati. When the church was destroyed to make way for a highway, the windows were crated and put in storage. It was not until 2001 that they were rediscovered and painstakingly restored, bringing the luminous angels and their messages back to life. Details of the restoration are described. In order that many people can see them, the windows are presently part of a traveling exhibition; for information please see incompanywithangels.org."
