Devotional images and altarpieces dedicated to Thomas Becket (1118-1170), Archbishop of Canterbury, were popular throughout Europe until the 16th century. In England, Henry VIII destroyed as many as he could find. However, Francis Cheetham illustrates several surviving examples now in public and private collections, including those in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, and in Leicester City Museum (on loan from St Bernard's Abbey, Coalville) (Cheetham 2003, op. cit. p. 65).
