Kissing a dragon? Interesting gargoyles adorn the outer walls of the Minster in York (England), all different from each other. . The York Minster is the second largest Gothic cathedral of Northern Europe, after the Dom in Cologne (Germany) - pictures of which I will publish later. But first York. . The present building was begun in about 1230 and completed in 1472. Among the many remarkable things is the floorplan, which is cruciform rather than the Latin cross which is more common in mainland Europe. This means that the east end of the church is equal in length to the nave. As a result the crossing tower really is situated in the geometric middle of the church. The north and south transepts were the first parts of the new church to be built in the early 13thcentury, in the so-called Early English style. Then the octagonal chapter house, linked to the north transept, was constructed in the early Decorated style. At the end of the thirteenth century, construction of the widest Gothic nave in England started, also in the Decorated Gothic style. This includes the eastern facade with its two impressive towers. . Then, at the end of the fourteenth century, the east end was added in the Perpendicular Gothic style. It is closed off not by an apse, but by a façade with the Great East Window, the largest expanse of medieval stained glass in the world. Finally, in the 15th century the crossing tower was added in the Perpendicular style. . . #yorkminster #traveling_arte #tv_churchandgraves #total_sacro #fa_sacral #be_one_sacro #ig_monuments #ig_monumentalworld #world_bestangels #fiftyshades_of_history #total_medieval #medievalworld #art_creative_pictures #super_art_channel #gargoyle #r_a_d_members #church_masters #arteinsalvo #enjoy_arte #art_photogroup #arts_illife #catalogodarte #vivoartworld #ig_discoveries #church_photogroup #photosofbritain #ig_england #genuinebritain #lovegreatbritain #englandsbigpicture

Here we have Saint William! Not a very old painting, I guess, but pretty nonetheless. I found it in the crypt of the Minster of York (England), where you can also admire his modest tomb. . Saint William is venerated here, his tomb attracted pilgrims for centuries. Most remarkable about Saint William is that he was Archbishop of York twice! This was caused by another power fight in the 12th century, far before Henry VIII was born, between the Pope and the King of England! . When a Cistercian was elected to become Pope Eugene III, he managed to have archbishop William deposed in favour of his fellow Cistercian Henry Murdac. But William managed to regain the see after six years, with the help of King Stephen of England. However, he died shortly after returning to York, allegedly having been poisoned! . After William's death miracles were reported at his tomb and fifty years later he was declared a saint. . The Saint William window in the north-east transept of the York Minster depicts the story of his turbulent life. The window was made in the 15th century, probably by the workshop of John Thornton who also was responsuble for the Great East Window in the same church. . . #yorkminster #photosofbritain #ig_england #genuinebritain #lovegreatbritain #art_creative_pictures #super_art_channel #traveling_arte #finestresullarte #be_one_sacro #ars_sacra #r_a_d_members #arteinsalvo #estaes_arte #enjoy_arte #art_photogroup #arts_illife #catalogodarte #museide #vivoartworld #total_sacro #igworldclub_museum #artenelmondo #volgoarte #total_artgallery #thehub_art #art_emotive #total_art_gallery #fa_sacral #saintwilliam
