De eodem, & causa sæviendi in obsessos.


CAP. XVI.


                                        NEC desunt præsentis seculi ad hoc explendum dura instrumenta,
                                        duriores milites, & durissima vlciscendi vindicta,
Modus superandi rupinas arces.                                         qua celerioribus compendiis, bombardis scilicet,
                                        & æreis tormentis, arces hujusmodi demoliendas aggrediuntur,
                                        eo videlicet modo, vt obliquo montium latere
                                        contra fortalicia ad id congruente, tractorias machinas
                                        statuant: e quibus fortiores bombardas funibus alligatas,
                                        ad directam præsidii concussionem sublimius, vel depressius
                                        attrahunt, eoque situ eas dependere sinunt: summeque
Bombardæ teguntur nigro panno. frondium, aut atrorum vestium adumbratione cavent, ne quæ geruntur ab arcium
vigilibus conspiciantur, ne opem (si poterint) afferant rebus illico perituris: quo
facto, igne in eisdem tormentis idonee præparatis immisso, ferreos globos ea violentia
eiiciunt, vt eorum contactu muri, compaginesque arcis repente dissolvanrur:
quam jacturam ne resartiant inclusi, incessanter obsidentes reiterant bombardarum ictum,
simulque e latere turmas immittunt armatas, vt quos saxea moles non obruit,
Continuatio pugnæ. ipsæ continua oppugnantione perturbent, donec inclusos intercipiant, & captivatos
abducant. Est præterea alius modus præsidia demoliendi, hostico furori modernis
seculis augendæ hominum calamitati solicite præparatus, tanto truculentior, quanto
Modus vsitatus. celerior antedicto existimandus: quo videlicet bombardali pulvere fundamentis
arcium suffosso, ac clauso, igneque subtilibus filis per rimas paulatim adhibito, velut
fulmine repente arces ipsæ quasi in cinerem comminui solent. Quod plerunque acrius
arces expugnantur, & forsan atrocissimo cruciatu indifferenter occiduntur obsessi,
inter alias causas non exilis hæc est, quod obsessi inhonesta, opprobriosa, ac
Verba contumeliosai aggravanti obsessorum pœnas. contumeliosa verba, scommata, ac irrisiones, honorem principum obsidentium
tangentes, sine respectu turpissime fundunt: quo
sit, vt nullus, vel rarus fit veniæ locus, vel paciscendi
tempus, quia major est plerunque
Culpa magna pœna auget. culpa, quam quod veniam
mereatur, aut faciliorem
pœnam.
