The Baptistery. Canterbury Cathedral. The Baptistery. Since A.D. 597, when St. Augustine landed in Kent, the site on which Canterbury Cathedral stands has been occupied by a Christian Church. The present edifice dates from 1070, when the old Saxon church was rebuilt by Bishop Lanfranc. The Baptistery, or "Bell Jesus" is an old piece of work off the north-east transept, and leading from the Presbytery to the old monastery buildings.
