York Minster is one of the greatest cathedrals in England and has played a central role in English history as the focus of political interaction between Church and State for the past thirteen hundred years.
Ann Willey's text traces the history of this remarkable building and institution, taking the reader on a journey encompassing history, architecture, worship and a host of colorful characters.
Over 100 superb color photographs evoke the impressive scale of the cathedral with its heavy Gothic tower and the spacious grandeur of its architecture. Also included are numerous details of the Minster's glass, sculpture and historic treasures.
