York Minster & Roman column.

York Minster & Roman column.

York Minster is a cathedral in York, England and is one of the largest of its kind in Northern Europe. The minster is the seat of the Archbishop of York, the second-highest office of the Church of England and is the cathedral for the Diocese of York. The title "minster" is attributed to churches established in the Anglo-Saxon period as missionary teaching churches and serves now as an honorific title.
The minster has a very wide Decorated Gothic nave and chapter house, a Perpendicular Gothic Quire and East end and Early English North and South transepts. The nave contains the West Window, constructed in 1338 and over the Lady Chapel in the East end is the Great East Window, (finished in 1408), the largest expanse of medieval stained glass in the world. In the North transept is the Five Sisters Window, each lancet being over 52 feet (16 m) high. The South transept contains the famous rose window, while the West Window contains a heart-shaped design colloquially known as 'The Heart of Yorkshire'.
