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.



"This is Divine Comedy in its Truest Sense"
John Kohan

“…a visionary painter…”
Meryl Doney, Curator for Wallspace All Hallows on the Wall

“Whelan’s art rescues the rich treasury of Catholic iconography from the fog of syncretist, solipsistic thinking.”
Martin Boland, Dean of Brentwood Cathedral
