"The reule of Seint Maure, or of Seint Beneit,
By cause that it was old and somdel streit
This ilke Monk leet olde thynges pace,
And heeld after the newe world the space."
Because the rule of St. Maure and St. Benedict was rather narrow, this same monk allowed these old things to lapse and adopted the modern world.
If the Rule of St Benedict was considered to be out of date in the 14th century by an English civil servant, how out of date is it now?
