Stained Glass of Canterbury Cathedral. Canterbury Cathedral is one of the oldest Christian churches in England and it continues to play a central role in English Christianity. Originally founded in 602 AD by St. Augustine, it still functions as the cathedral of the Archbishop of Canterbury, the leader of the worldwide Anglican Communion. Canterbury was an important spiritual center ever since Augustine, but it became a major pilgrimage destination after the martyrdom of St. Thomas Becket in 1170 (familiar to most as the subject of Geoffrey Chaucer's humorous Canterbury Tales).

Canterbury Cathedral was one of the most important centres of pilgrimage in Medieval England. At the eastern end of the cathedral is a massive stained glass window that shows stories from the Bible. There has been a cathedral at Canterbury since 597 when St. Augustine baptised the Saxon king Ethelbert. The Archbishop of Canterbury was the most senior religious figure in the land and he was based at the cathedral. Beneath it is the patriarchal chair (cathedra), made of Purbeck marble, on which since the 12th Century all archbishops have been enthroned.

Canterbury Cathedral is situated in the County of Kent in England, in what has become a World Heritage Site. In this part of the Cathedral there are many wonderful stained glass windows, which portray some of the miracles connected to St. Thomas. It is located within walled grounds together with ruins and medieval buildings. The Crypt built in Romanesque style is the oldest existing part of Canterbury Cathedral, dating from 11th century; it is the largest crypt from this time surviving in Britain.
