Gabriel Alington presents a new biography of St Thomas of Hereford. Thomas Cantilupe played a central role in the spiritual and political life of 13th-century England, holding high office in Church and state as Chancellor of Oxford University and Bishop of Hereford. Thomas was canonized in 1320 and his tomb in Hereford Cathedral became an important site of late medieval pilgrimage.
