St. THOMAS OF HEREFORD

Christian Saint

Also known as Thomas de Cantilupe

Bishop and Chancellor of Oxford in England

Not of a meek and mild disposition, he was quite happy to battle with students and possibly try and knock sense into them.

He supported the Barons’ rights against Henry III. They made peace and he became Chancellor of England before his Bishopric.

His last quarrel was with the Archbishop of Canterbury, and he set off in a huff to seek the Pope’s support but died whilst in Rome.
