With church stained glass, Denver houses of worship join a centuries old tradition. Did you know there are cathedrals in Europe whose windows are among the earliest examples of religious stained glass, dating back to the early to mid-fifteenth century? We’re talking about the stained glass in the sunning Florence Cathedral, designed by Lorenzo Ghiberti, and there are many other early examples still existing as well.
For religious or church stained glass, Denver churches and temples do not need to follow any specific design tradition, though. These days, church stained glass can be commissioned in a wide variety of styles and designs, depending on the architecture of the building and the desires of the congregation.
Originally, church stained glass was designed to tell a story. It frequently featured biblical scenes or representations of saints, religious icons, or other symbology. Its purpose was to uplift, inspire, and impart a message upon the worshipers. With today’s church stained glass, Denver churches can do the same. Although the windows many area churches are choosing today are much less literal in appearance, the overall intent is the same.

And by the way, you can click on any one of the thumbnails on this page to see a larger photo that better shows off the gorgeous detailed workmanship.
You might have noticed that some of the examples look like they could have come from an ancient church, traditional in nature. And others are obviously part of our modern era. That’s because with Stained Glass Denver, each and every single stained glass panel we make is custom designed to our client’s needs, tastes, and specifications. So you can choose the type of religious stained glass that you want for your church. And we will build it.
