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.
