Long Description:

In the late 13th and early 14th centuries, trade guilds of the town of Freiburg im Breisgau funded a series of glorious stained-glass windows to line the nave of the Freiburg Minster, a cathedral founded around the year 1200. As a result, the products and tools of each guild feature prominently.

In the northwest corner, next to the rose window, is the legacy of the Brewers’ Guild. Jesus Christ looks down from the upper compartment of the window, with a chalice bearing three of the nails from his cross etched alongside. In the lower edges of the window, the guild’s symbols appear in the form of beer pitchers and a cup measure. Although some of the original windows suffered damage in the ensuing years, a restoration in the nineteenth century brought them back to their full splendor.
