The Canterbury Cathedral
Historic context
He established his seat within the Roman city walls and built the first cathedral there, becoming the first Archbishop of Canterbury. Since that time, there has been a community around the Cathedral offering daily prayer to God this community is arguably the oldest organization in the English speaking world. The present Archbishop, The Most Revd Justin Welby, is 105th in the line of succession from Augustine. Until the 10th century, the Cathedral community lived as the household of the Archbishop. During the 10th century, it became a formal community of Benedictine monks, which continued until the monastery was dissolved by King Henry VIII in 1540.
San Agustin, the first Archbishop of Canterbury, arrived on the coast of Kent as a missionary to England in 597 AD. He came from Rome, sent by Pope Gregory the great. It’s said the Gregory had been struck by the beauty of Angle slaves he saw for sale in the city market and despatched Agustin and some monks to convert them to Christianity, Agustin was given a church at Canterbury by the local King, Ethelbert whose Queen, Bertha, a French Princess, was already a Christian. This building had been a place of worship during the Roman occupation of Britain and is the oldest church in England still in use. Augustine had been consecrated a bishop in France and was later made an archbishop by the Pope.

2.- Gervase of Canterbury and the meteorite on the Moon.
At sunset on Sunday 18 June 1178 , the eve of St. John , a strange event occurred on the moon and could be completed by five monks who were enjoying some leisure time in the gardens before dinner . The moon was under new moon but suddenly the upper horn seemed to split in two and separated. Between the two horns came a brilliant flash that threw fire, coal and sparks on the moon's surface . Then, the moon turned black for a few minutes and gradually regained its normal state.
