    (1) What do Patriarch Gregory V of Constantinople, and Metropolitan Philip II of Moscow have in common?

    (2) Which King was whipped by the monks in Canterbury Cathedral as penance for the murder of Thomas Becket?

    (3) What was the fate of Archbishop Laud?

    These questions all involve Bishops killed by the authorities of the lands where they lived – Apart from question one all are English though Thomas Becket and Henry II were actually far more French rather than English

    (1) They were both attacked in their cathedrals and subsequently murdered

    (2) Henry II

    (3) He was beheaded by act of Parliament after it proved impossible to secure a conviction for treason in the normal courts

    (4) They were burned at the stake
