The striking rose window in the façade of Morristown’s Church of the Redeemer is dedicated as a memorial to those who returned from World War I. Built in 1917, the pudding stone, Gothic Revival church was designed by the NY architectural firm, Parish & Schroeder.
The stained glass rose window features elaborate stone tracery radiating from a central stone quatrefoil containing the Greek letters, Alpha and Omega. Radiating spokes form the stems of elaborate leaves, each of which has a central stained glass shield. Between the spokes are six stained glass figures, possibly representing Apostles. The beautiful window is placed within a circular quarry-faced stone surround. The window was designed & fabricated by the English firm of Heaton, Butler & Bayne.
