Event: Conversation, Grant and Gift, HospitalityEdward 15.receiving religious

Scholarly Info
Description Edward 15 kindly received religious abbots and monks, above all foreign, whom he knew to be very devout and strict in their service to God, joined humbly in their conversation, and, at their departure, generously lavished himself on them. This he used to do throughout his reign; and since the news spread widely that such was his pleasure, he kept hospitality of this kind not only frequently but all the time. Moreover, like a good father, he exhibited such men as models to the abbots and monks of his own kingdom, for monastic discipline had come to these more recently, and was on that account less strict.
