Canterbury - LoveToKnow 1911 (2767 words)
CANTERBURY, a city and county of a city, the metropolis of an archdiocese of the Church of England, and a municipal, county and parliamentary borough of Kent, England, 62 m.
It was to Canterbury, as the capital of ZEthelberht, the fourth Saxon king of Kent, that in J97 Augustine and his fellow-missionaries came from Rome, and their settlement by lEthelberht in his capital became the origin of its position, held ever since, as the metropolis of the Church of England.
Canterbury was a great centre of the silk-weaving trade in the 17th century, large numbers of Walloons, driven by persecution to England, having settled there in the reign of Elizabeth.
CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Canterbury (2149 words)
Throughout the subsequent history the archbishops could not deal with archiepiscopal property without the concurrence of the monastic chapter, and the efforts of the archbishops to rid themselves of the control of the Canterbury monks gave rise to the frequent disputes between prelate and chapter that recur throughout the history of the diocese.
Thenceforth, too, the Archbishops of Canterbury became absorbed in the wider duties of primate, as is seen in the episcopate of St. Anselm, who contested with the king the rights of the Church involved in the question of investitures.
Canterbury, as a city, has never recovered from the loss of St. Thomas's shrine and the destruction of the two great monasteries, but the cathedral still remains, one of the finest buildings in the country, as a witness to its former glory.
