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.



"I think God has His hand on Brian... His art is so original and comes from within, which always makes people think.”

Art critic, Sister Wendy Beckett

“...celebrated Irish artist...”
Charlie Minter, British and Irish Specialist, Sotheby’s

“It is rare to find a contemporary artist so confident in his portrayal of traditional religious themes.”
Rev. Canon John McLuckie, St Mary's Episcopal Cathedral, Edinburgh
