Description

From Calvin to Machen
The main panels of the north window show John Calvin (in the bottom window) seated writing. Above him is a red heart held in a hand symbolizing Calvin’s statement when he was converted: “Lord, I offer you my heart promptly and sincerely.” The coat of arms for the city of Geneva is in the center panel. Above this seal, Edwards and Whitfield are shown preaching. Benjamin Warfield is welcoming Abraham Kuyper to Princeton for the inauguration of the Stone lectures (1898) in the top panel. The log cabin with the blue roof (just below Warfield and Kuyper) commemorates the beginning of Princeton University. Across the top of the window a wagon is shown with a team of missionary efforts of John Nevius, who developed the Nevius plan for establishing missions in foreign lands.

Other small representations, beginning at lower left include Zwingli, the early Swiss reformer; the Scottish reformer John Knox and gravestones showing the killing-time in Scotland; two early missionaries to American Indians, John Eliot and David Brainerd; the Scottish minister and evangelist Robert Murray McCheyne; and finally, James Oliver Buswell Jr., who taught at Covenant Theological Seminary on the same campus as Covenant College when it was in St. Louis, Missouri. On the other side from bottom to top are two Swiss reformers – being driven from Allan, Switzerland; William Farel and Heinrich Bullinger; a picture of Westminster Abbey; the Baptist missionary William Carey in Burma; Charles Hodge of Princeton and James H. Thornwell of South Carolina; and finally the courtroom scene at the trial of J. Gresham Machen in 1936.
