the prologue Edit
basically the summoner was dissing on the friar by telling a short story about how a friar was taken to hell, he asked the angel that took him if he and all the friars were to good for hell. “Yes, many millions!” said this angell, and led him down to Satan. “Now, Satan,” he said, “has a tail broader than the sail of a barge. Rise up, Satan,” he cried, “let the friar see where the nest of friars is in this place!” 1691 just after this santen arose and 20,000 friars flew out from his @*$.
The summoner Edit
Basically the Summoners job was and still is to summon people to court. the summoners where often hated not only due to the fact that they summoned people to court but also that they would collect taxes.
