Art in the Cathedral

The Cathedral provides wonderful resources to discover and inspire students - with works of art such as the 12th century Lazarus reliefs as well as more contemporary work by John Piper, Hans Feibusch, Graham Sutherland and Marc Chagall – as well as many other beautiful examples of stained glass, decorative stone and wood carvings, forged metalwork and textiles from each century of the Cathedral’s history.  There are many ways for students to explore and engage.
