JOHN CALVIN's WINDOW IN TARZANA

DISCOVERING OUR VALLEY      2011

Stained glass windows in Christian churches throughout the San Fernando Valley, tell nearly every major aspect of Christian religion and theology. Here, one of the men most instrumental in the Protestant Reformation looks over the congregation of Saint James Presbyterian church in Tarzana. John Calvin influenced the formation of Reformed and Presbyterian churches throughout the world.

John Calvin was born in Noyan France in 1509. This widow was one of the few surviving artifacts from the original Saint James church in Tarzana after the great Northridge earthquake.
