Exhibition: The Road to the Cross
In 2015, on the occasion of the centenary of Edith Cavell’s execution in Schaerbeek, the cathedral had hosted the polyptych by artist Brian Whelan as commissioned by Norwich Cathedral to recall the life of this remarkable woman.
This year, the cathedral is once again welcoming this exhibition to commemorate the centenary of the transfer of Edith Cavell’s remains.



“He goes to dark, grim places, places that in the modern world we like to pretend don’t exist and when he gets there he cracks jokes. This work is the work of the medieval jester.”
Joe Horgan, Patrick Kavanagh Poetry Award winner

“His work is bold and commanding.”
Seamus Heaney, Nobel Laureate

"...Brian is an artist of great skill, depth, and integrity, informed by both medieval and contemporary sensibilities."

Rev. Dr Peter Doll, Canon Librarian, Norwich Cathedral.
