St. Jude’s Church, Glasgow


This inscribed sans serif lettering is found on the former Greek Orthodox church of St Jude’s h, Glasgow. Designed in 1838 by the architect John Stephen in the Greek Revival Style, it was later used as an Episcopal Church and then as a Presbyterian Church before being redeveloped as office and finally as a hotel. The letters are in Greek. I’m afraid the meaning is unknown to me. If anyone can provide a translation, I’d be grateful.

Location: Great West Street, Glasgow, Scotland.
