York Minster Advent Webinar Series: Stories from the Great East Window

York Minster is hosting a webinar series that focuses on the Great East Window--the renowned medieval masterpiece created by John Thornton in the 15th century.

Each week, a different speaker will take one panel of the window to explore the traditional Advent themes of Death, Judgement, Heaven and Hell--known as The Four Last Things--challenging contemporary views of the Advent and Christmas season.

Broadcast live, each speaker will give a short presentation, followed by discussion and Q&A online.
