York, The Minster 1891

More about this scene

Caption for York, The Minster 1891: Begun in 1225 and completed in 1472, York Minster is considered to be one of the finest cathedrals in all England.

The strike was seen by some as a sign that the Almighty was displeased with the views of the recently enthroned Bishop of Durham's questioning of the virgin birth and resurrection.
