Canterbury Cathedral was founded in 597 AD by St. Augustine. In 1162, Thomas Becket was elected archbishop of Canterbury but only eight years later he was murdered within the walls of cathedral on December 29, 1170. He was canonized St. Thomas in 1173. In the 13th century the shrine of St. Thomas was built within Trinity Chapel. This cross was inspired by a floral quatrofoil design within window number eleven on the north aisle above the shrine of St. Thomas.
