Brother Ben was a brother of the Archdiocese of Puzzles.

Every month at the Archdiocese, a tourist group toured throughout the monastery. One room of particular note was Brother Ben's. The tourists were led in through the only door in and out of the room. It contained a rather dusty desk fully equipped with musty blank scrolls, dried up ink wells, and a quill. There was a trap door that housed Brother Ben's valuables as well, but that remained locked as the tours progressed. Through the only window in the room, which was barred up and only one foot tall by one foot wide, one could see the excellent view of the ocean.

When it was ascertained that all of the tourists were inside the room, the only door was locked until the tourists agreed to pay up money towards the Archdiocese of Puzzles. Yet every time this occurred, Brother Ben was able to escape the room flawlessly.

How is this possible?
