The Question and Answer section for Don Quixote Book I is a great resource to ask questions, find answers, and discuss the novel.
I don't reecall the quote. Alonso was one of the mourners whose "walking lights" frighten Don Quixote. After Quixote attacks one of the mourners, Alonso Lopez explains that they are only mourners, not devils. What chapter is the quote in?
I see no evidence of monks mentioned in Chapter Eight of Don Quixote. Please check your question.
