Thomas de Cantilupe – 700 Years a Saint: St Thomas of Hereford


Michael Tavinor and Ian Bass


Thomas Cantilupe (1218-82) was one of a group of medieval bishops canonised during the 14th century.

In this, the 700th anniversary of his being made a saint in 1320 we tell the story of his colourful life – a scholar, politician, priest and bishop – and chart his long struggle to sainthood.

As one of Hereford’s own saints, we see how Cantilupe has influenced cathedral and diocese over the centuries.

Lavishly illustrated with over 80 colour images
