Ful wel biloved and famulier was he
With frankeleyns over al in his contree,
And eek with worthy wommen of the toun.
– Geoffrey Chaucer
The Canterbury Tales, General Prologue. The likeable but contemptable Friar Hubert is said to be well beloved and intimate with the landowning gentry and with worthy women. Here it is being suggested that he lives a lifestyle of worldiness and licentious behavior, instead of the piety and Godliness associated with a clergyman.
