The Munich stained glass window style was developed in Germany in the early 19th-century. The style typically depicts highly figurative scenes set not a pale border of towering spires, often referred to as “castle-work”. The windows of St. John the Apostle Catholic Church actually meld two artistic styles together: the Munich style and the Gothic Revival style. The Gothic Influence influence is in tribute to the original stained glass of their previous church. The church wished to combine the two styles for their new windows.
