De arcibus violentorum præsidum comburendis.


CAP. XVI.

                                        RVRICOLÆ, seu communitates, sentientes se quandoque
                                        incessabili violentia ab iniquis præsidibus prater omnem
                                        æquitatem vexari, ad amaritudinem provocati, fortissimas
                                        arces ampla glacie circundatas, cohortibus ac turmis, Modus debellandi arces.
                                        quasi vir vnus, modo quo sequitur, aggrediuntur debellandas.
                                        Quoties enim in Septentrionalibus regnis intolerabilia
                                        vulgi onera ( nulla exigente necessitate ) vel aliæ crudelissimæ
                                        oppressiones inducuntur, toties vi priblica armorum
                                        gravaminibus tam atrocibus perpetue infringendis obviatur,
ita videlicet quod incolæ, seu rustici (. qui semper potentes, & vniti ibidemRustici aquilonares potentes & feroces.
sunt ) hujusmodi fortalitia demolituri, condictos tempore plura millia eiusdem territorii
in sylva, ac glacie arcibus viciniore conveniunt, communi ferocia repente quid
faciendum sit consulentes, & concludentes. Inter quos viri acrioris ingenii, brevi
exhortatione ad multitudinem furentem super passis, ac patiendis gravaminibus exposita,
vnicuique agmini sub ductoribus leverioribus officia distribuunt opportuniora: Officia distribuuntur.
aliis, vt machinas fortissimas, ac altas subito e lignis super glaciem construant:
aliis, vt multa millia fasciculorum penes eos e sylva excisa comportent: aliis,
vt magistros operis ballistis, & armis per excubias a tyrannicis incursibus tueantur,
donec omnibus paratis vnanimiter institutum negotium aggrediantur: quo sit, vt
primum machinas, sive propugnacula, contra hostium tormenta, vel sagittas securissimeTormenta bellica.
antrorsum in lubrica glacie trudant, manipulatinique fasciculos infinita multitudine
& humeris, & vehiculis congestos, super muros, & mœnia jactent, donec
nec eorum altisudine vel superata, vel æquata, ignibus immissis flamma, & fumoObsessi flamma & fumo superantur.
absumantur inclusi: qui neque periculum, hoc avertere, neque sese ob immensam combustibilis
materiæ molem delendere possunt, aut æquis conditionibus apud inexorabiles,
& furiosissimos hostes invenire: neque fugere conceditur, ob multitudinem ad
omnem cædem, & truculentiam excitatam. Nec aliter quam stupa exardescens, comburunturAedificia vt plurimum lignea.
hæc fortalitia: quæ incendiis obnoxia sunt. Majori enim parte non latere
cocto, aut campestribus saxis, sed e densis sylvis (ob arcendum frigus) coagmentatis
