About the Tour
This one-hour guided tour features the Easter story illustrated through medieval works of art in stained glass, sculpture and painting. The biblical narrative involves tremendous sadness, followed by great joy; key episodes highlighted on this tour include the Last Supper, the Crucifixion, the Resurrection and the Ascension of Christ into heaven. Visitors also learn how Easter was celebrated at Glencairn by the Pitcairn family.
Three Easter dioramas were made in the 1920s for the Pitcairn family by Winfred S. Hyatt, the principal stained-glass artist and designer for Bryn Athyn Cathedral and Glencairn. In 2019 they will be on exhibit in Glencairn’s Upper Hall from Wednesday, March 6, to Saturday, April 20.
