Very nice quote, though there's one thing I don't understand:

If he will not go, let two stout monks, in the name of God, explain the matter to him.

Hmm, "stout." That means, like, "able to explain stuff really well," right?

    In this context, I think it means "able to explain stuff very convincingly" ;)

    I think it's a spelling mistake and should rather read as "stdout" instead of "stout", and STDOUT monks are shure to explain a lot ;)

    Personally I think he meant two monks who had had enough to drink that they had the courage to push the offender out. ;-)
