De portubus annullorum ferreorum.


CAP. XIII.


                                        DICTO superiore capite, quam inscrutabilis in littoribus
                                        Norvegiæ inter excelsiores montes fit profunditas: nunc
                                        ostendendum erit, quomodo inter sinuosas, scopulosasque
                                        voragines adnavigantes securius absque anchoris invenire
                                        firmareque poterint suas stationes. Quocirca cernuntur hicAnnuli ferrei montibus infixi.
                                        annuli ferrei, clypeo militari ampliores, fuso plumbo lateribus
                                        multorum montium successivo maris tractu quondam
                                        bonorum Regum magnificentia, & sumptu, præcipue
                                        versus opulentam civitarem Bergensem, infixi, vt æstu
vel tempestate vrgente, subito funibus immissis quasi inter abditas cavernas solidenturNaves ligantur.

labyrintho sese committere velint. Littus enim scopulis. , & rupibus ita obvium
est, vt inde egredi, vel progredi nequaquam valeant inexperti: immo propter
eius, & similium locorum (vt infra de inimicis classibus specialius dicetur ) difficultatem, &
asperitatem naufragabuntur. Et si bellicæ naves, vel piratarum, eo hostili
impetu, vel tempestatum impulsu appulerint, consiliis, auxiliisque destitutæ, sæpissimeFame, frigore pereunt hostes.
tum same, tum frigore, tum aggressu incolarum, miserabili spectaculo veluti
contra elementa pugnaturæ consumuntur. Hujusque calamitosi eventus insimili
casu, si quis legerit Norvegianorum, Danorumque annales, Christiernus II Rex Danorum.
præsertim Regis Christierni II. horribilem in omnibus
reperiet infelicitatem. Ideoque sæpissime
terrentur hostes ab
ingressu horum
scopulorum,
ne severius, & secretius ab apertis, vel latentibus saxis inter
montes, quam patentibus inimicis in gurgite
conterantur.
