CHAPTER 29 WHETHER THE BRETHREN WHO LEAVE THE MONASTERY OUGHT TO BE RECEIVED AGAIN

CHAPTER XXIX.

Whether the Brethren who leave the monastery ought to be received again.

If that Brother, who through his own fault leaveth, or is cast out of the Monastery, be willing to return, he shall first promise to amend the fault for which he went forth; then let him be received into the lowest rank, that by this, his humility may be tried. If he go out again, let him be received back till the third time. But after this let him know that all entrance will be denied him.
