LIBER SEPTIMVS        235

num, aut tormentorum genere in eius admotione lædi possint.

De modo, & tempore adducendi veltas.


CAP. XVIII.

                                        VT autem expeditius animo suo vlsciscendi, maturiore efficacioreque
                                        naturæ adminiculo satisfacere valeant, ex industria
                                        ventos expectant, & eligunt tempestuosos & austerioresTempestate sæviente vruntur arces.
                                        qui admotos & accensos veltarum fumos, & flammas
                                        tectis arcium intrudant: alioque latere turmatim imminent sagittari
                                        infestiores, qui vel obsessos in fenestris, vel scuta in
                                        manribus opposita, aut capita obsessorum ita sagittarum, ac
                                        telo um multitudine replent, vt formam induant ericiorum.
                                        Eoque finaliter vis ista progreditur, vt obsessi viribusObsessi vincuntur.
destitutis, vel flammis & fumo devicti, horrendo spectaculo nullis admissis conditionibus,
aut pactis interimantur. Nescit enim effrenis rusticorum simplicitas aliaRustica pacta.
tractare pacta, quam sola mors amarissima præscribit obsessis, eo quod toties vaserrimis
impiorum præsidum, & hostium induciis illusam, ac afflictam se meminit,
at interemptam: vt potius eligat semel fortiter pugnando mori, quam ad tanta ludibria,
ac tormenta tyrannorum diutius reservari. Et hinc mos crudelissimus inolevit,
vt milites gregarii cum Sueticis, ac Gothicis ruricolis, & indigenis publico
certamine congredientes, desperatione vitæ retinendæ neminem captivant, nec econtraCertamen mortiferum.
sed sese mox interimunt furia quadam beluina, prout vbique per latissimos campos
non epitaphia, sed ipsa ossa rupibus vbique affixa demonstrant. Attamem hæc luduosa Calamitas luctuosa.
calamitas plures externos milites variarum nationum, eo ob vilem vitæ venditionem
consluentium, dira morte consumit, quam ipsos indigenas, qui viribus audi
quotidie fortiores, severioresque adversus quemcunque hostilem vim exurgunt. Testantur
etiam hoc peregrini milites, qui numine propitio miserias has quandoqueMilites peregrini.
evasere, documentum cæteris omnibus præstantes, Svetici
argenti spolium vita, & sanguine ab extremis
gentibus dispari commutatione fore emercandum.
Infelicissimus
igitur est, qui alieno
non credens periculo, supradicta mala intelligereExperientia infelix.
noluerit, sed experiri.
