After hearing the Friar's tale, the Summoner is angry and sarcastically suggests that the Friar told a  well-documented story since friars and fiends are always good friends. He then recalls for the other  pilgrims the story of the friar who once had a vision of hell and, while being guided through hell by an  angel, never saw a single friar. The friar wondered aloud whether all friars were in a state of grace; in  response, the angel asked Satan to lift up his tail. Suddenly twenty thousand friars were seen  swarming around Satan's "arse." Having made his point about the friars in general, the Summoner  tells another insulting story about one friar in particular.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
