De chorea gladiatoria, vel armifera saltatione.


CAP. XXIII.

                                        HABENT præterea Septentrionales Gothi, & Sueci, pro
                                        exercenda juventute alium ludum, quod inter nudos enses, Chorea nudorum ensium.
                                        & infestos gladios, seu frameas, sese exerceant satu.
                                        idque quodam gymnastico ritu, & disciplina, ætate suæcessiva
                                        a peritis, & præsultore sub cantu addiscunt: & ostendunt
                                        hunc ludum, præcipue tempore carnisprivii, Maschararum Tempus carnis privii.
                                        Italico verbo dictos. Ante etenim tempus eiusdem
                                        carnisprivii, octo diebus continua saltatione sese adolescentes
                                        numerose exercent, elevatis scilicet gladiis, sed
vagina reclusis, ad triplicem gyrum. Deinde evaginatis, itidemque elevatis ensibus,
postmodum manuatim extensis, modestius gyrando alterutrius cuspidem capulumque
receptantes, sese mutato ordine in modum figuræ hexagoni fingendi subiiciunt: quam
rosam dicunt: & illico eam gladios retrahendo, elevandoque reso!uunt, vt super vniuscujusqueRosa gladiatoria.
caput quadrata rosa resultet: et tandem vehementissima gladiorum laterali collisione,
celerrime retrograda saltatione determinant ludum: quem tibiis, vel cantilenis, Saltus cantu moderatus.
aut vtrisque simul, primum per graviorem, demum vehementiorem saltum, et vltimo
impetuosissimum moderantur. Sed hæc speculatio sine oculari inspectione vix apprehenditur,
quam pulchra, honestaque sit, dum vnius parcissimo præcepto, etiam
armata multitudo quadam alacritate dirigitur ad certamen: eoque ludo clericis seseArmatæ multitudo parcissimo præcepto dirigitur.
exercere, & immiscere licet, quia totus deducitur honestissima ratione. Quod autem
armati chorisent, Strabo de Curetibus Aetoliam habitantibus lib. X. affirmat,
quod ab eis armisera saltatio (licet Persis contemptui habita) sit primum introducta.
Sed econtra in ipsa pugna invicti habiti, & admirationi, dum fortiores cæteris viderentur, Armati chorisantes.
qui versatam in armis vitam haberent.
