Even that reverent and renewing pilgrimage quickly comes to seem like something rather less commendable. At the end of the 14th century, when Chaucer was writing, Canterbury had a pretty mixed reputation. In the or so years since Thomas Becket was murdered in the cathedral, his shrine had become a theme park.

Nor do they embody any ascetic ideals. The Wife of Bath gets through pilgrimages like she does husbands.
