In Gothic churches and cathedrals, the decorations in the rose window served as illustrations to educate 'illiterate' members of the congregation. They would often be adorned with Biblical stories or symbols intended to instruct people how to worship and behave.
Rose windows were sometimes used during the Romanesque period, but these windows were usually plain. It was not until the 12th century that complex stained glass and tracery decorations began to appear in rose windows.
In many churches, the rose window is located at the west end of the nave, in the end of the transepts.
Rose window is sometimes used as a generic term for a circular window.
