Stained-Glass Windows at the Glasgow University Chapel

Stained-Glass Windows at the Glasgow University Chapel

The Glasgow University Chapel, also known as the War Memorial Chapel, was built in 1929 as a memorial to the 755 members of staff, students and others associated with the University of Glasgow who were killed in the First World War.

The stained glass windows above, known as the Benedicite Window, were installed in 1962, and can also be seen from the West Quadrangle of the Main Building. Below them sits a statue of, you guessed it, St Mungo.
