De pudico virginum ornatu.


CAP. II.

                                        VIRGINVM autem ornatus in pretiosis, & amplissimisHabitus virginum pudicissimus.
                                        aureis, vel deauratis coronis, in capitibus erat: & pro pudicitiæ
                                        custodia, a collo antrorsum retrorsumque dependebat sericeum,
                                        vel lineum candidi coloris pallium: quale nunc religiosi
                                        Scapulare, vel Patientiam nuncupant: quo habitu, vel
                                        pallio, omnia corporis membra, tanquam freni moderamineFrenum virginale.
                                        incedendo, vel conversando, cum admirabili modestia &
                                        verecundia ( visu, vel colloquio virorum nusquam, nisi parentum
                                        licentia permisso, vtentes ) dirigebant. Tantaque inerat
eis pudicitia, vt vix rogatæ virum publico in cœtu, donec conjugali vinculo
stringerentur, raroque tunc, inspicere vellent. Adeo casta celebritate oculos vbique, Oculorum casta celebritas.
etiam a licitis, refrenabant. Surgente demum tempore spurcissimæ hæresis Lutheranæ,
monstroso vitulo vaccæ partu in agro Vittembergensi, Ducatus Saxoniæ, edito, Vitulus monstrosus.
anno M. D. XVII. præsignatæ, qua vbique, & fere in omni regione frena pudicitiæ laxabantur,
mores corruptissimi exinde secuti, præsertim fœminei sexus in visu, linguaMores corruptissimi fœminarum.
habitu, gressu, tactu, & denique omnibus impudicitiæ signis: quibus ostendunt
se lascivas, garrulas, procaces, & nugaces, ita vt exigua differentia a lupanari
reperiatur, & præsertim vbi materfamilias est corrupta: quam tota familiaMater familias.
in omni scelere imitari consuevit. Olim glauci coloris vestitus, quasi portentosusColor glaucus.
in Aquilone videbatur: nunc vero & ille tanquam splendidior, & aliæ
petulantes vestium scissuræ, exotica vanitate admissæ, signum infallibile scissæ castitatisInventio vestium incisarum.
& pudicitiæ ostendunt: quales supervacuæ vestimentorum rime, nunquam, nisi
ab infamibus mulierculis, originem & abusum susceperunt, & continuarunt. Quid
obsecro Reginæ, Ducissæ, & ita de reliquis, vanissimus iste vestitus ad ostentationem,
& impuritatem, ac perpetuam infamiam, a scurris, nebulonibus,
ac meretricibus solicite quæsitus, repertus, & continuatus,
præter venturæ senectutis lachrymas lascivi habitus, Lachrymæ senectutis.
vt eternæ gratiæ pulchritudo reparetur,
deferre possit ?
