Summary: A monk of evil life feeling his end approach and fearing to die, asks his fellow monks to pray to the Virgin for him in the church. While they are doing this he apparently dies, but revives to thank the Virgin for saving him from damnation by her intercession. He receives the sacraments and makes an exemplary end. (250)
