In general, not exactly sure, but the nun carries a rosary, one would assume that a monk would as well. Proably the Bible, there is a mention that the monk does not like wasting his time reading it.

We get a description of him in the Prologue (Lines 169-211) and he does not seem to carry anything. We learn that he is unreligious and corrupt. He is more interested in hunting than Jesus. He has a fine horse, nice clothes embelished with expensive furs, greyhounds are his companions.
