Exeter Cathedral’s very own Dean invites you to a bespoke Tour at the Deanery to discover the extensive collection of religious Icons, which he has been collecting for over 25 years.
Jonathan will describe how icons are produced and for what reasons, and how the materials can differ. There will be some examples from Russia, Georgia and another depicting the transfiguration. £20 with a glass of wine and conversation, booking essential.
This is a reprised tour due to popular demand.
