 Chaucer--Friar
Friars and summoners both circulated freely among the folk, and therefore they had plenty of opportunity of becoming "rusted" (or "shitten") as the Pilgrim-Parson would say (I.500, 504).
Because the friars collected tithes and the summoners were arresting people who might expect to be fined, both routinely had their hands on more money than the average medieval churchman, and (surprise!) some of it stuck there.
When the Friar brags that summoners "han of us no jurisdiccioun" because errant friars were judged by their orders' superiors rather than the archbishop's court, the Summoner interrupts to compare their "immunity" to that of "wommen of the styves" (III.1330, 1332).

 Chaucerís Friar:
The Friar seems to be an excellent example of the corrupt nature of many low-level clergymen of the times- while his activities were not heretical or heinous, his behavior is certainly not in accord with the selfless moral teachings he is supposed to espouse.
Furthermore, we are told that the Friar is well acquainted with the franklins and worthy women of his territory (lines 216-217), but he felt it beneath him to fraternize with other beggars, lepers, and the "poor trash" around him (lines 242-247).
The Friar’s elitist background and behavior, his begging-supported greed, and the vices that oppose true Christianity prove that he is a man of low moral standards.

Friar Laurence sends Friar John to get a crowbar and makes plans to be there when Juliet awakes, write again to Romeo in Mantua, and hide Juliet in his cell until Romeo arrives.

 Models of Ministry: Re-reading Chaucer's Friar's Tale
The friar concisely defines him as "A theef, and eek a somnour, and a baude" (1354).
This final scene of the Friar's Tale serves to accentuate the proper ministerial servitude of the fiend, while overtly emphasizing the selfish pursuit of worldly gain by the summoner.
He suggests that the Friar's Tale can and should be read as a religious poem which illustrates the tension in the mortal world between religious and civic duties.

Kimon Friar was born in 1911 in Imrali, Turkey, to an American father and a Greek mother.
Friar was educated at a number of institutions, including the Chicago Art Institute, the Yale School of Drama, the University of Iowa, and University of Wisconsin where he received his bachelor's degree with honors in 1935.

 Friar Daw's Reply: Introduction
Friar Daw wages a tit for tat verbal skirmish with his antagonist, ``Jack,'' but is sometimes reduced to defending himself by saying, for example, ``Ther we piken but seely pans [from the poor and rich], thi secte pikith poundis'' (327).
In any event, ``Friar Daw Topias'' should probably be regarded as a fictional literary character and not, as Skeat says, ``a Dominican'' or, as Heyworth would have it, a member of the London Blackfriars.
Although FitzRalph was conveniently not at home, or not responding to the friar's knock, he condemned friars in another sermon two days later at St. Paul's Cross while at the same time refuting the charges lodged against him by Friar John and the London mendicants.

 Robin Hood and the Curtal Friar: Introduction   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)

Though the word artillery (line 10) seems thoroughly contemporary and literary, this is not a bookish ballad: the rhymes are occasionally weak as in many early texts, and it is notable how much of the lyrical ballad technique of "repetition with variation" is found.
While it is in many ways a comic and festal text, Robin Hood and the Curtal Friar also, with a holy warrior, mysteriously powerful dogs, and a conflict at what seems to be a ford, touches some of the deeper resources in the Robin Hood myth.
