An online talk to mark the anniversary of the death of Saint Thomas Becket

Join us to mark the 850th anniversary of the death of St Thomas Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury from 1162 until his murder at the hands of King Henry II’s men in Canterbury Cathedral in 1170.

His image is emblazoned on the walls of St Albans Cathedral – painted during the medieval period onto a pillar of the nave, and re-illuminated as part of the ‘Alban, Britain’s First Saint’ project. This talk explores how he has been portrayed in the centuries since his death. More information to follow.
