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 an international centre for the study and conservation of stained glass, ensuring its survival into the third millennium. This is a revised and updated guide to this internationally important collection of stained and painted glass, with over 100 colour illustrations.

Starting with evidence for the glazing of the pre-Conquest Minster and the earliest surviving glazing from the twelfth-century church, the author then embarks on an extended tour of the Minster’s windows, including the Five Sisters, the famous Bell-Founder’s Window, the Great West Window, often called the Heart of Yorkshire and John Thornton’s magnificent Great East Window recently rediscovered through conservation and research.
