Carpius obtains a copy of a valuable ikon and wished to switch it with the original. He goes to the monastery where it is kept and tries to steal it. He is discovered by a monk whom he then kills. Other monks hear the commotion and capture Carpius. Carpius pleads for forgiveness. The archimandrite tell him that forgiveness is only possible through prayer.
