Martin Entrance Foyer

Martin Entrance Foyer



On the outside wall of the Martin Entrance Foyer are three lofty double stained-glass windows which were created by Charles J. Connick Associates Inc. in Boston, Massachusetts.










The windows listed below represent three of Robert Browning's best short poems:


  • "Rabbi Ben Ezra" on the left ("Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be")
  • "Abt Vogler" in the center ("On the earth the broken arcs; in the heaven a perfect round")
  • "Saul" on the right ("Tis not what man Does which exalts him, but what man Would do")
With sixty-two stained glass windows, the Armstrong Browning Library holds the world's largest collection of secular stained glass.

Please take a moment to enjoy the beauty of these windows and to study their accompanying poetry.
