This paper describes the account of a monk arriving in Reykjavik, Iceland. The paper recounts his details of the people who have joined his monastery since his arrival, as well as their personal backgrounds and character defects that have been improved since their joining the monastery.
From the Paper:"In just over a year and nine months I had established a monastery in the traditions of St. Benedict. Within three years there were 22 monks in the monastery. Initially the monks held a few pagan tenets, all the while accepting Jesus as their lord and savior. Yet now it seems as thought I have successfully washed away all of these ludicrous ideas. This seems to have occurred with much less time than I had anticipated, as the culture is absolutely steeped in tales of false gods and magic. I maintain steadfastness in stressing the way of the lord for their foundation may easily sway them form the ways of Jesus. I have heard many tales of these people as ravenous warriors who maintain ridiculous rites."
