Duties

In apostolic courts in the Middle Ages, one officer had the responsibility of finding and arresting accused individuals and bringing them to a judge. The Summoner, also known as an apparatus, performed this job. The most famous Summonerin literature was a character in "The Canterbury Tales“

Attributes

To make the summoner appear intimidating and imply that he was a sinner, Chaucer's character had lumps and boils on his face and body, an assumed punishment for unsavory behavior. His character also had breath that reeked of garlic and alcohol.

Responsibility

In some situations, the summoner arrested the accused and, if applicable, seized the disputed property to present to the court. This essentially gave him the power of a sheriff or constable of the region.

Physical Appearance

  • His fiery red pimpled cherubic face is the direct result of his sinful and lecherous activities.
  • His delight in eating garlic, onions and leek and his fondness for wine further aggravates his physical condition.
  • Appears extremely repulsive with suppurating blotches on his cheeks, black scabby eyebrows and scanty beard.

Personality Description

  • This corrupt Summoner extorts protection money from every gullible sinner by threatening them of excommunication
  • Allows many sinners to bribe him because of his own guilt of being a sinner.
  • His own demeanor makes people think “What is the law?”

CHAUCER’S VIEW OF THE PARDONER
  • •Chaucer depicts the pardoner as a crooked man.•“He wore no hood upon his head, for fun; / The hood inside his wallet had been stowed”•“He had bulging eyeballs”•“He’d sewed a holy relic on his cap”•“And (well he could) win silver from the crowd. / That’s why he sang so merrily and loud.”
  • Chaucer believes the pardoner is an evil and corrupt man. He is meant to be a man of God, but ironically is the exact opposite.

What Are the Duties of a Pardoner?

  • According to The Norton Anthology of English Literature, a pardoner’s role in society was to pardon sins in return for money which was given to his charitable institution. David Kirkham and Professor Helen Phillips state that “these works of mercy were thought of as worthy, and (as is still the case today) morally and spiritually beneficial to the giver, as well as those who were helped.
  • Who is a Pardoner?

Pardoners used to be questers. They were also monks and priests, who were actually licensed to pardon sins unlike other pardoners. Some pardoners were fraudulent and kept the money gained through pardoning sins.
