New book about York Minster’s stained glass launched today

Stained Glass at York Minster

Stained Glass at York Minster by Sarah Brown introduces the magnificent stained glass at York Minster, starting with evidence for the glazing of the pre-conquest Minster and the earliest surviving glazing from the twelfth century church.

She then embarks on an extended tour of the Minster’s windows including amonst others, the Rose Window, the Great West and Great East windows and the Five Sisters window, with a ground plan of the Minster to enable every window to be located.

The windows of York Minster are regarded as one of the wonders of the world; they illustrate the art and craft of glass painting extending over nine centuries.

Over 100 colour illustrations capture the history and splendor of this internationally important collection of stained and painted glass, with photography by Nick Tweed.
