Saint Thomas of Canterbury

"On 29 December, 1170, Thomas Becket was murdered by four knights in this spot, which came to be called The Martyrdom. Above the altar is a sculpture of two swords and a broken sword point, a reminder that one of the knights broke his sword tip when striking a blow to Becket's head. "
