illustration placeholder

De commitiis insularibus, & consiliariis.


CAP. XLIIII.

                                        ACCIDERAT præterea temporibus antiquis intantum
Pestis antiqua.                                         prævaluisse mortalium luem in Septentrionalibus regnis, vt
                                        sublatis principibus, immo Regia stirpe, & potiore nobilium
Stirps regia consumpta.                                         prosapia, longo temporum intervallo quasi acephalus
                                        populus coalescens, discordi regimine, atque tumultuario
                                        gubernio disponeretur, vt penes nullum solida potestas lege
Malum intestinum.                                         vel autoritate roborata maneret: quinimmo eo fors infelix
                                        devenerat, vt nemo alteri in concilio fideret, nemo obtemperaret,
                                        nemo attenderet, quid e hac detestabili discordia
Seniores populi. exurgere posset, dum domi ruinam, & rapinam, forisque contemptum, & infamiam
incolæ ampliarent. Quocirca seniores populi emeriti vestitu, & barba horridiore,
ob experientiam, & naturæ bonitatem, citra vllam scientiam, & citia literas
Conventus insularis. convenientes, ne amplius totam regionem periclitari sinerent, consilia quæsituri
in insulam aliquam sese transtulerunt, vt potius sub aperto cœlo quam tectis, de
Paucorum judicia expeditoria. concordi atque vtile regimine providerent. Et ita fuisse commemorat antiquitas. Nam
paucorum, & bonorum sagaci judicio eo res perplexa deducta est, vt vni omnium
consensu gubernandi traderetur autoritas, quo tanquam electus supremus Princeps
Amnestitiæ lex. subjecta dominia moderaretur, optimeque diebus eorum, atque subsequentium ætatum
successivis temporibus providerentur: hac tamen lege amnestiæ, seu oblivionis relicta,
vt nullus retroacti temporis injurias, vel offensas vllo vnquam ævo revocaret
in vltionem. Eaque lex pro tanto semper fuit habita vtilior,
quo eius imitatio tenacior fuerit
in executione.
De eis
