The Muhlenberg Chapel is a distinctive feature of St. Luke’s Hospital, designed by Ernest Flagg and named for the founder, Dr. William Augustus Muhlenberg. The chapel is rectilinear in plan, with an elliptical ceiling supported by transverse ribs resting on delicate corbels, rising 40 feet from the floor. The chapel’s chief decoration is found in its stunning stained glass windows on the theme of “Christ the Consoler” with rondels depicting the “Seven Acts of Mercy” by Henry Holiday.
A special Guided Tour of the Chapel with a discussion of Henry Holiday’s stained glass windows will be led by architect George B. Bryant
Please note: The entrance to the Chapel is on 113th street. George Bryant and Dr. Norma Braun will be there to greet the group and direct them to the Chapel.
