In the fourteenth century, going on pilgrimage was very popular. As soon as spring would come, people would gather to go to visit some holy place and pray to a particular saint: such was the excuse for going. In his poem The Canterbury Tales, Geoffrey Chaucer depicts the pilgrimage to the altar of saint Thomas Becket. All the pilgrims leave from Tabard Inn and set out on the quest for Canterbury. Besides Chaucer, there are twenty-nine pilgrims in the group. This image shows some of them.
