Delayed because of the Covid-19 Pandemic, the British Museum’s long-awaited exhibition commemorating the 850th Anniversary of the murder of St. Thomas Becket on 29 December 1170 opened on 20 May 2021. It is scheduled to run through 22 August 2021.
We can attest that the exhibition catalog “Thomas Becket: Murder and the Making of a Saint” by Lloyd de Beer and Naomi Speakman is splendid!
Saints_Aplenty has over 200 items spread over 7 COLLECTIONS devoted to Saint Thomas Becket in our Zazzle store. The principal images, links, and a scrolling showcase with representative products appear below.
