De Alfone pudicitiæ defensore.


CAP. XVIII.

Sivardus rex.                                         REX Gothorum Sivardus filios habuit Vemundum, &
Aluida.                                         Ostenum, filiamque Aluidam: quæ tantam verecundiæ fidem
                                        ab ipsis incunabulis præferebat, vt os peplo jugiter obnuptum
Mos pudicarum mulierum.                                         haberet, quominus formam suam alienæ libidinis irritamentum
                                        efficeret. Huic pater in arctam custodiam relegatæ
Vipera & Anguis.                                         viperam, anguemque educandos commisit, pudicitiam
                                        eius adultorum tandem reptilium custodia vallaturus: vt viris
                                        tantummodo fortitudine & virtute insignibus, magnitudine
                                        discriminum superata, virginis aditum annuere viderentur:
Pœna adjecta. hoc adjecto, vt si quis idipsum frustra tentasset, protinus amputandum caput,
paloque refigendum præberet: ne quivis petulanti ingenio stimulatus, tantum facinus
Alffus. in Regium sanguinem præsumeret attentare. Quo comperto Alf Sigari Regis
Danorum filius, non tam viribus, quam ingenio confidens, periculumque eo clarius
quo periculosius, tentandum existimans, proci titulo beluas virginei thalami servasrices,
debellandas aggreditur, præsertim quod edicti ratione earum victori virgineus
deberetur amplexus. Quarum vt fortius adversum se excitatam rabiem sustineret,
Tegumem cruentæ pellis. cruda cruentaque corpus pelle contexit: qua succinctus, mox vt septi valuas sublit,
candens ferrum forcipe comprehensum, hiantis viperæ faucibus immersit, atque
Candens ferrum. exanimem prostravit. Anguem deinde sinuosa volubilitate accedentem, inter medios
ridus telo absumpsit, vel, vt antiquiores Gothorum historiæ tractunt, ardenti
ferrea hasta, velut cultrato mucrone, oppressit. Cumque edicti ratione connexum
victoriæ pignus expeteret, refert Rex Sivardus, Hunc sibi generum placiturum, in
Consensus filiæ. quem filia solido arbitrio consentiret. Cumque sola puellæ mater proci votum difficulter
exciperet, mentem filiæ secreto perlustrat alloquio: quæ cum deprehensa esset
procum incautius ob virtutem laudare, mater eam conuitiis lacerat, quod elisis pudicitiæ
Specierum illecebra. nervis, specterum illecebra caperetur, omissaque virtutis censura, adulantibus
formæ blanditiis lascivæ mentis intuitum exhiberet. Quamobrem justam matris sententiam
tacite approbans, ingenium invenit, quo nedum pudicitiam. beluinis custodibus
interemptis)illæsam ostenderet, sed insigniori aliquo fortitudinis ausu speciosius
illustraret, & confirmaret, Moxque ad Danici juvenis contemptum adducta, fœmineam
