Two-Faced Spiritual Qualities Narrator Thoughts (Quotes) and Satire http://www.ca-missions.org/oldsite/davis.html
http://marriage.about.com/od/infamous/p/warrenjeffs.htm 1. "Hubert this gallant Friar was by name". Satire is used here because he calls the Friar gallant which means, "courteous: courteous and thoughtful, especially toward women". This is ironic as well due to the fact he got many women pregnant; paid men to marry women and performed ceremony as well.
2. "The barmaids and innkeepers pleased his mind. Better than beggars and lepers and their kind". Satire is used here because Chaucer says people at the taverns kept him happy more than the poor people, people he should have been helping. So he spent most of his time getting drunk and getting women when he should have been helping the poor, which is what his job was. Hubert was our dirty little friar who took advantage of his power and deceived others for his own benefit. He cared more about getting drunk and having sex with women than he cared about the poor and the exiled, which was what he was suppose to do as a friar. For him to forgive people's sins, he made them buy him dinner; lastly he gave women away after he got them pregnant, to men for marriage. Ironically he performed the marriages himself. Mental Qualities Smart
Viewed himself as pure and perfect (nothing wrong)
Thought he was better than others. Ex. Champion beggar of his entire brotherhood. 6-7 hours a day were spent on praying.
4 hours were spent with children, the elderly, the sick. Wtih kids they would usually teach them religion, music, language, games, etc.
2 hours were spent on eating (we do not know if they usually ate breakfast).
Approximately 2 hours were left for the Friars to relax, read, play cards, and socialize until bedtime which was at 9pm. Professional Qualities Performed marriages
Suppose to be out begging for the poor and the lepers, but does it for himself instead.
Neglectful towards his duties as a Friar.
Ironically he was treated as if he were the Pope himself or a doctor.
