Canterbury Cross


The Origin of the Canterbury Cross

Canterbury, England is famous for its many churches, many of which have been standing since the 1500’s.  The most famous of the churches is Canterbury Cathedral where St. Thomas Becket was assassinated by King Henry’s men on December 29, 1170.  Near the center of the town, a small brooch was dug up in 1867 on St. George’s Street.  This pendant, known as the Canterbury Cross or the Becket Cross, remained buried for over a thousand years and is now one of the most famous images of a Christian cross in the world.  Its design is of Saxon origin and dates back to 850 A.D. when all of England was organized into a diocese.  Irish monks introduced Christianity to Britain around 563 A.D.
