Early Life and Education
Thomas was raised in a household with devout parents and studied at Augustinian Merton Priory, London and Paris. After winning Archbishop Theobald’s trust and acting as his agent, he was sent by him to study civil and canon law at Bologna and Auxerre. Thomas made himself agreeable to everyone around him, excelling at argumentation and repartee; among his friends were Roman lawyer Vacarius as well as future bishops such as Roger of Pont l’Eveque; having been older than Henry but celibate may have felt an affinity for Henry or elder-brother relationship whilst wanting to rise further within ranks beyond himself.
