Come See The Exquisite Beauty of VTS's Stained Glass Windows
Virginia Theological Seminary is blessed in excellent students, faculty, and staff as well as stunning aesthetics that make our Immanuel Chapel one of the finest religious structures in Virginia. We are home to three works by renowned stained glass artist, Rowan LeCompte. Known for his ornate pieces installed at the Washington National Cathedral in D.C., Rowan was a modern stained glass prodigy who began his career at the tender age of 16. Virginia Theological Seminary is proud to showcase Peter’s Denial, The Crucifixion, and Jesus Carries His Cross that were gifted to the Seminary in 1954.
The Most Rev. Michael Curry, the 27th Presiding Bishop and Primate of the Episcopal Church (also known as the Bishop who preached at Meghan and Harry's Royal Wedding) dedicated three new circular windows to adorn the north, south and west transepts of the Immanuel Chapel. These vibrant windows representing the Holy Trinity were designed by Brian Clarke and crafted by Derix Glassstudios in Taunusstein-Wehen, Germany. These stunning pieces allow for natural light to pour vibrant hues throughout the chapel in a mesmerizing display.
Virginia Theological Seminary is the flagship seminary of the Episcopal Church. Founded in 1823, VTS prepares women and men from around the world for both ordained and lay service in the Church. VTS offers Masters and Doctoral level degrees, non-degree diplomas, and Continuing Education programs.
