The Conspirators in the private apartments of Thomas A'Becket shortly before his murder... 1862. Creator: Unknown

The Conspirators in the private apartments of Thomas A'Becket shortly before his murder: the Primate addressing Tracy - by J. Gilbert, 1862. Engraving of a painting. Scene in the grand hall of the Archbishop's palace. Without a word, the knights marched straight up to where the Archbishop was and sat themselves upon the floor beneath him. At the time of their entering, a Becket was engaged in converse with a monk, which he pointedly continued. After a while he turned round, and, gazing steadfastly at them, saluted Tracy by name. (This is the moment, a singularly solemn and impressive one, which Mr, Gilbert has selected for illustration). Awed by his dignity, or by the sanctity of the place, the conspirators were still silent; but at length Fitzurse, who appeared throughout to take the lead, said, "We have a message from the King, over the water; will you hear it in private, or before all?" "As you wish, " replied the Archbishop. "Nay, as you wish, " said Fitzurse. At a sign from the Primate the monks withdrew. Hardly, however, had Fitzurse began his message when a Becket, from a sudden consciousness of danger, exclaimed, "This must not be told in secret!" and recalled the monks...'. From "Illustrated London News", 1862
