The prior warned the Marquis that he should not leave Griselidis alone for so long.
The Marquis insisted that his wife would never look at another man while he was away. He was willing to declare his trust in Griselidis before the Devil.
Unfortunately, the Devil heard.
He persuaded the Marquis to make a wager to prove his belief in Griselidis.
