De congelatione aquarum impedienda.


CAP. XI.

                                        NE autem longissimæ noctis gelu glacies contra patos intrudendosNoctes longissimæ.
                                        constringatur, aqua perfunditur viscosa pinguedine
                                        marinarum belluarum, quo supernatante omnis congelatio
                                        aquarum prohibetur, quemadmodum superius in libro
                                        de glacialibus bellis cap. XXIII. satis est ostesum. Super
                                        hos etiam palos taliter aquis fundoque immersos, ædificantur
                                        domus ligneæ magnarum trabium, tabulisque abietinis, Domus super aquas ædificantur, & quare?
                                        vel pineis superpositis, populeis, sive betuleis corticibus,
                                        & subtilibus truncis rotundis conteguntur, maximæ
ad effectum mures, vermesque arcendi, ne grana, vel alia esui necessaria corrodantur,
vel igne domestico indiligenter custodito consumantur. Attamen domus illæDomus in mediis aquis comburuntur.
quandoque, etsi super aquas firmatæ sint, tamen fulgure, vel hostilibus insidiis
aliquando incendunsur quemadmodum in mediis aquis Venetiis multoties fieri vidi,
scilicet domestico foco male sopito optimas, ac ornatissimas ædes concremari.
Quod si ignis non fecerit depopulationem, tunc vis ventorum adeo sævire solet inNaves submerguntur.
plerisque portubus marinis, præcipue regiæ Holmensis in Suetia, vt maxima navigia
multigenis referta divitiis, ad vela parata in vno momento submergantur. Nec
plus ex eo naufragio, ob inscrutabilem profunditatem, conspici permittitur, quam
summitas mali majoris, seu antennæ, vel candidi veli. Crediturque propterea diversisDivitiæ infinitæ aquis inclusæ.
temporibus eo in gurgite majorem auri, argenti, æris, ferri, cusæque monetæ
thesaurum fore, quam habeant pronunc ditissimæ arces, & civitates: cujus
evidens testimonium, & exemplum si quis admirari velit, videat
historias charissimi fratris & antecessoris mei
Io. Archiepiscopi Vpsalensis.
