Stained glass at York Minster, by Sarah Brown, 1999 edition,

£9.99

Product description

The city of York is England's treasure house of stained glass; in the Minster and Parish churches is preserved Britain's largest and most comprehensive collection of medieval stained and painted glass. The 128 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. York is also a centre for the study and conservation of stained glass, ensuring its survival into the third millennium.
Sarah Brown introduces the magnificent stained glass at York Minster, starting with the evidence for the glazing of the pre-Conquest Minster and the earliest surviving from the twelfth-century church. She then embarks on an extended tour of the Minster's windows , including the Five Sisters in the north transept,the Rose Window in the south transept, the famous Bell-Founder's Window in the north nave aisle, the Great West Window-often called the Heart of Yorkshire - and the Great East Window depicting the Apocalypse. Panels from the newly conserved St. William Window in the choir, the York Glazier's Trust , are illustrated for the first time.
The less well-known windows of the eighteenth to twentieth centuries are also described, including Ervin Bossanyi's 1944 St Francis panels in the seclusion of the Zouche Chapel. A ground plan of the Minster enables every window to be located.
Over 100 colour illustrations capture the history and splendour of this internationally important collection of painted and stained glass.
