In the last chapter of the romance of Aymon's Four Sons, Renault, as an act of penance, carries the hods of mortar for the building of St. Peter's, at Cologne.
“Since I cannot improve our architecture, ... I am resolved to do
like Renault of Montauhan, and I will wait on the masons. ... As it was
not in my good luck to be cut out for one of them. I will live and die
the admirer of their divine writings.” —
