Thomas Becket

December 29, 1170. Death of Thomas Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury at the hands of the minions of King Henry II.

High living. Intrigue. Power and glory. Friendship and treachery.

Church and State.

And Sainthood.

Stage, cinema, DVD and Blueray. Intersection of history and entertainment.

This is not "we report, you decide." Look it up, see the movie, learn something.
