Becket turned his administrative abilities and diplomatic finesse as a distinguished chancellor into ardour and devotion as archbishop. He became as strong a supporter of the papacy as he had once been of the king and freely excommunicated courtiers and nobles for their unlawful use of church property and other breaches. In the face of the king’s intent to imprison him, Becket exiled himself to France for six years. He returned to England following a partial reconciliation with the king, only to begin quarreling with him anew.
