The Life and Times of Geoffrey Chaucer
Though few dates in Geoffrey Chaucer's life can be determined with any real certainty, October 25, 1400 is the date on his tomb in Westminster Abbey, making the year 2001 the 600th anniversary of one of the greatest writers in the English language. But while so much of Chaucer's life is only sketchily documented, the fact of his literary greatness is indisputable. Indeed, Chaucer's work has withstood the test of time.

Thomas À Becket: Canterbury's Martyr
The accounts by Geoffrey Chaucer's fictional pilgrims in The Canterbury Tales have captivated readers for over 600 years, popularizing Canterbury as a pilgrimage site. But one story was not told. Taking center stage in those turbulent times, and in the endless conflict between Church and State, were principal characters of a true Canterbury Tale, none other than England's King Henry II and Thomas à Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury.
