De portentosa vltione Murium adversus impios.

CAP. XXI.

                                        REFERT Herodotus lib. II. quod Aegyptio simulachrorum
                                        sacerdoti pro salutem populi trepidanti, ac anxie
                                        dormienti, numen per quietem auxiliarios contra impium SanacharibumAuxiliarum mures.
                                        Assyriorum & Arabum Regem, eidem sacerdoti
                                        mortem, & Aegypto destructionem machinantem, mittere
                                        promississet. Vnde sacerdos alacriter animatus, sumptis secum
                                        institoribus, operariis, & forensibus, dum nulli bellatores
                                        eum sequi vellent, castra in Pelusio ( qua primum invaditurAegyptus in Pelusio primum invaditur.
                                        Aegyptus ) posuit, vt hostem tam ferocem reprimere
posset: eumque nocte accedentem excepit. Et ecce affuere auxiliarii promissi, vis scilicet
innumerabilis agrestium murium: qui inimicorum tum pharetras, tum arcus, tum scutorum. Mures innumeri.
habenas abederunt, vt postera die hostes armis exuti, fugam fecerint, amissis multis.
Eoque nunc iste Rex (inquit Herodotus) in templo Vulcani lapideus stat, manu murem
tenens, atque hæc per literas dicens: IN ME QVIS INTVENS PIVSPius esto.
ESTO. Huic etiam lapidi simile, vel forsan crudelius spectaculum, ostendit murium
turris in Rheno flumine fundata, eo quod in illa a muribus cosumptus est HattoTurris murium in Rheno.
Antistes Maguntinus, ob multorum pauperum oppressionem, tempore caristiæ
truculentissime perpetratam. Non attendebat infelix Pontifex ad dictum Sapientis
Prover. XI: Captans annonam, maledictus in plebe est: benedictio autem in capiteBenedictus qui participat.
eius, qui participat: prout optime Ambrosius asserit lib. III. Officiorum cap. VI.
& VII. vbi dicit, peregrinos, & pauperes tempore famis vrbe non arcendos.

Adhuc de sæva vltione Murium.

CAP. XXII.

                                        PRæTEREA Munsterus in orbis descriptione effigiata,
                                        aliam murium turrim ponit, prædicta longe horribilioem: Popilius Rex Poloniæ.
                                        in qua allegat quendam Poloniæ Regem, Popilium nomine,
                                        miserabiliter, modo quo sequitur, periisse. Convivia
                                        celebrantem, mero madentem, sertis coronatum, vnguentis
                                        delibutum, crapula & luxu resolutum, invadunt mures, Mures e cadaveribus patruorum.
                                        de cadaveribus patruorum, quos ipse, & vxor eius Regina
                                        veneno interfecerant, ingenti magnitudine egressi, & in
                                        convivantem tyrannum, consortem eius, & filios rabidis morsibus
insiliunt, militum caterva nequaquam abigente, quoniam humano suffragio fatigato, Mures infatigati.
mures infatigati perseverabant, die noctuque. Extruuntur ardentes foci, & in medio
eorum locatur Popilius, conjunx, & filii: illuc autem & mures per flammasPræsidium in aqua invalidum.
transeuntes, parricidam rodere non cessabant. Ad aliud tandem elementum ventum
est. In navibus abducitur occisor patruorum Popilius, cum suis in stagni altitudinem:
mures tamen incessanter secuti abductos, & naves rodebant, intantum vt
aqua perforatis rimis ingressa, submersionem minaretur. Ideo nautæ timentes præfocatioaemCaterva murium.
ab aquis, deduxerunt navem in littus: vnde alia caterva murium occurrens,
