Summary

Description
English: St. Thomas Becket faces King Henry II in a dispute; Henry II and Thomas A'Beckett from a contemporary manuscript. In 1162 King Henry II persuaded his Chancellor Thomas Becket, to become Archbishop of Canterbury, although Becket warned him that his chief loyalty would then be to the Church and not to the king. They disagreed about many matters. One of the most important was whether clergy who had broken the law could be tried in the King's courts or whether they could appear only before the Church courts. Eventually in 1170 Becket was murdered by three of the King's knights and Henry was blamed. This is taken from 'Peter of Langtoft, Chronicle of England'. This manuscript was probably written and pictures added during the reign of Edward II (1307-1327).
