PRÆFATIO.


                                        DECLARATVRVS Septentrionalis populi maximos
                                        errores circa inanem idolorum cultum, fallaciis dæmonum
                                        ( seducta mortalium simplicitate, & antiquitate) introductos,
                                        video in primis necessarium fore, nonnihil e vicinis
                                        regionibus, præsertim Lituania, quæ in charta mea
Lituania idolorum cultrix.                                         Gothica inseritur, de eodem cultu fore præmittendum, quomodo
                                        hanc, sicuti omnem aliam gentem, invidia, & astutia
                                        diaboli tot retroactis seculis in horrendis erroribus tenuerit
                                        captivatam, donec recentioribus annis laudabili Polonorum
Regum devotione, ac industria, ad communionem Catholicæ fidei fuerat
advocata: in qua vt jugiter perseveret, incessabiliter ab optimo Deo est petendum
Lituania magnus ducatus, & cur. Hanc Lituaniam ducatum magnum diei existimo, quia amplissimus est, & opulentissimus
in cæra, melle, armentis, & pellibus pretiosis magnus. Itidem est,
quia equos, & magnanimos, ac strenuos bellatores habent. Magnus est, quia sæpius
Tartaros, ac Moscos, & Valachos acerrimis præliis superatos eduxerat in triumphum.
Magnus etiam, quia a dæmonum cultu liberatus major adhuc fieri possit,
præsertim syncera servata concordia cum Polonis: & rursus exili discordia suborta,
& non sedata, in minimam redigi potestatem, vel servitutem. Sed nec exiguus
Finlandiæ ducatus. est ducatus Finlandiæ Regi Suetiæ subjectæ: quæ olim etiam sub cultura dæmonum
fascinata, Regio titulo, & potentia decorabatur: trecenta continensmilliaria
Germanica, seu Gothica in longitudine, ac in latitudine LX. qui ducatus
Finlandiæ circa annos quadringentos in Australiori sua parte fuerat armis
Regum Suetiæ, & Pontificum prædicatione vicinis
Christicolis associatus.
