The rebels burned the charters, legal records of the Church's vast land-holdings, stored within the Temple. This act - a religious building being targeted of in rebellion against a mismanaged, abusi ...

On the other hand, his best friend, Thomas Beckett experiences a sudden transformation, when he is appointed Archbishop of Cante ...
