In 1390 he made a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, but, while at the Holy Sepulchre and other sacred places, he ate and drank with the Saracens for which, by June 1391, he was excommunicated by Pope Boniface IX. In March 1392 he was granted absolution and released from excommunication, having paid a sum to the papal collector equivalent to the expenses of the uncompleted portion of his pilgrimage.
