Example text

Mannen smilte (i hvert fall gikk jeg ut fra at han smilte), hevet en pekefinger i været og sa manende: «Penitenziagite! Ti se, draco venturus est, han vil gnage på din sjel! La mortz est super nos! Be om at den hellige far vil befri nos a malo de todas le peccata! Ho - ho, liker dere ista negromanzia de Domini Nostri Iesu Christi! Et anco jois me'es dols e plazer m'es dolors ... Cave el diabolo! Semper m'aguaita in qualche canto per adentarme le carcagna. Men Salvatore non est insipiens! Bonum monasterium.

Jeg har aldri sett et bedre orientert abbedi, senere skulle jeg komme til å lære å kjenne både St. Gallen, Cluny og Fontenay, og andre anlegg, men ingen så velproporsjonerte. Og anderledes enn alt annet var den umåtelige og gigantiske Kolossen. Jeg har ikke kunnskaper som murmester, men jeg er sikker på at denne giganten var eldre enn alle de andre bygningene innenfor ringmuren, kanskje en gang skapt for andre formål, men nå inkorporert i hele det senere anlegg, men slik at kjempebygget tilpasser seg kirken og ikke omvendt.
