Apocalypse: The Great East Window of York Minster by Professor Sarah Brown (University of York and Director, York Glaziers Trust) is the first publication to offer a complete photographic catalogue of the stained glass panels representing the Apocalypse in the Great East Window of York Minster, with detailed analysis and commentary.
The book is both a testament to the remarkable combination of skill, scholarship and cutting-edge technology that has gone into the conservation of the window, and an important study of the significance of the Apocalypse narrative both in the early 15th century and today.
