This is an east window in St John’s which was the first Lutheran church established in Western Australia (1901). Lutheranism is a branch of Christianity that identifies with the theology of Martin Luther, who launched the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century. This window is simple in form, and displays several important christian symbols – the vine grows around and through the window and bears fruit and in turn becomes the altar wine. The Cross and Crown symbolises the Lutheran’s belief in the importance of Christ the King. The fleur-de-lis is a common three-leafed symbol representing the trinity.
