CAP. III.


                                        PRO declaratione præsentis capitis advertendum erit, qui
Islandia cur sic dicta.                                         Islandia terra est subjecta polo Arctico, vento præsertim Circio
                                        opposita, ac mari Glaciali propinqua: atque ob id dici
Vltimum Tyle.                                         meretur terra glacialis, seu vltimum Tyle, nulli veterum
                                        non celebrata: cujus incolæ a Saxone Sialandico continentissimi
                                        dicuntur, religione satis Christiani propriam
Cantibus & rhythmis majorum                                        scripturam, historiamque rerum magnifice gestarum habentes.
gesta recensent.                                         Suique temporis adhuc acta conscribunt: quæ & cantibus,
                                        ac rhythmis recolunt, atque promontoriis, seu scopulis
insculpunt, vt nulla nisi cum naturæ injuria intercidant apud posteritatem.
Islandiæ extensio. Situs insulæ extenditur inter Austrum, & Boream, longitudine centum milliarium
Germanicorum. Pro majori parte montosa, & inculta, præsertim versus plagam
Circius. Septentrionalem, ob austera spiracula prædicti venti Circii, qui nec frutices elevare
permittit. Insula est insolitis miracuhs prædicanda. Rupes etenim, sive promontorium
in ea est ( vt superiori capitulo tactum est ) quod instar Aetnæ perpetuis
ignibus æstuat. Ibique locus esse creditur pœnæ, expiatonisque sordidarum animarum.
Spiritus seu vmbræIllic nempe spiritus, seu vmbræ, comperiuntur se exhibentes manifestos hvmanis
offeriit seministeriis submerforum, sive alio violento casum enectorum. Spectra sese offerunt
hominibus. congressibus notorum hominum tam manifesta, vt tanquam viventes accipiantur
ab ignaris mortis illorum, data dextra. Nec deprehenditur error priusquam
Error deprehenditurdisparuerint vmbræ. Incolæ plurimum præsagiunt fata principum, quidue remotius
separatione. in orbe peragitur, revelationibus apparentium spectrorum non ignorant, prout
inferius cap. de magicis præstigiis lucidius aperietur. Næc mysteria latebant Virgilium
sic dicentem:
        Continuo auditæ voces, vagitus & ingens,
        Infantumque animæ flentes in limine primo.
        Nec procul hinc partem fusi monstrantur in omnem
        Lugentes campi: sic illos nomine dicunt.
