York Minster’s Great East Window is the largest expanse of medieval stained and painted glass in the country. For the last ten years, it has been the subject of a major restoration and conservation project. All 311 stained glass panels, however, are once again revealed so that they can be admired by the visitor. This course will study the history, iconography, and art of the Great East Window, focusing on the symbolism and artistic execution of the Apocalypse panels. It is anticipated that this course will be held at the King’s Manor.
