Old St. Patrick Church
Stained Glass Window  –  by Thomas A O’Shaughnessy

Installed:   between 1912 and 1922

Inspired by the Celtic art exhibit at the Columbian Exposition of 1893 and the Book of Kells in Ireland, Thomas A. O’Shaughnessy designed, constructed, and personally installed the 15 beautiful stained-glass windows of Old St. Patrick’s between 1912 and 1922. The 12 side windows were inspired by the Celtic designs of Ireland’s Book of Kells. The final triptych windows, done in an art nouveau style and installed in the eastern facade of the church, are the “Faith, Hope & Charity” windows, also known as the Terrence MacSwiney Memorial Triptych. In 1977, Old St. Patrick’s was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

    Wonderful photos! One of the things I’ve always loved about Chicago is all the public art, so finding this blog makes my day. You know, I have to visit with the Picasso every time I come to town; it’s a bit like visiting a favorite old auntie. Keep up the good work.
