From A.D. 597, when the Roman Benedictine who became St. Augustine went to England, until 1558, when Cardinal Reginald Pole (1500-58) died, Canterbury was the primatial Catholic see of England. With the establishment of Anglicanism as the state religion, Canterbury became the world center of the Anglican Communion.
