York Minster, located in North Yorkshire, England, is considered both a Minster and a Cathedral, and it is the largest medieval gothic cathedral in Northern Europe. The first Minster in York, a wooden structure, was built in the year 627 for the baptism of Edwind, the Saxon King of Northumbria. Near York Minster, Constantine the Great was proclaimed Roman Emperor in the year 306.  Today, the Minster continues to serve as the seat of the Archbishop of York, the second-highest office of the Church of England.  With more than 26 million members, the Church of England’s roots date back to the time of the Roman Empire.
