LIBER XVIII.        641

De eodem continuatio.

CAP. XLIIII.

                                        ET cum Theatrum, quod est hemisphærium, Græce dicatur,
                                        Amphitheatrum, quasi in vnum juncta duo visoria, recteAmphitheatrum.
                                        constat esse nominatum: ovi speciem eius arena concludens,
                                        vt concurrentibus aptum daretur spatium, & spectantes omnia
                                        facilius viderent, dum quædam prolixa rotunditas vniversa collegerat. Rotunditas prolixa.
                                        Itur ergo ad talia, quæ refugere deberet
                                        humanitas. Primus fragili ligno confisus, currit ad ora beluarum:
                                        & illud, quod cupit evadere, magno impetu videtur
                                        appetere. Pari in se cursu festinat & prædator, & præda: Prædator, & præda citissime concurrunt.
nec aliter tutus esse potest, nisi huic, quem vitare cupit, occurrerit. Tunc in aëre saltu
corporis elevato, quasi vestes levissimæ supinata membra jaciuntur, & quidam
arcus corporeus supra beluam libratus, dum moras descendendi facit, sub ipso velocitas
ferina discedit. Sic accidit, vt ille magis possit videri mitior, qui probatur
illudi: alter angulis in quadrifaria mundi distributione compositis, rotabili facilitateIllusus videtur mitior.
præsumens, non discedendo fugit, non se longius faciendo discedit, sequitur insequentem,
poplitibus se reddens proximum, vt ora vitet vrsorum: ille in tenuem regulam
venire suspensus invitat exitiabilem feram: & nisi periclitatus fuerit, nil vnde
vivere possit, acquirit. Alter se gestabili muro cannarum, contra sævissimum animal,
ericii exemplo, receptatus includit: qui subito in tergus suum refugiens, intra seEricius se recludit in sphæram.
collectus absconditur: & cum nusquam discessent, eius corpusculum non videtur.
Nam sicut ille veniente contrario revolutus in sphæram, naturalibus defensatur
aculeis, sic iste consutili crate præcinctus, munitior redditur fragilitate cannarum. Fragilitas cannarum.
Alii tribus ( vt ita dixerim ) dispositis ostiolis paratam in se rabiem provocare
præsumunt, in patenti area cancellosis se postibus occulentes, modo facies, modo
terga monstrantes: vt mirum sit evadere, quos ita respicis per leonum vngues
dentesque volitare. Alter labenti rota feris offertur: eadem alter erigitur, vt periculisSpectaculum miserrimum.
auferatur. Sic hæc machina ad infidi mundi formata qualitatem, istos sæpe refovet,
illos timore discruciat, omnibus tamen vicissim, vt decipere possit, arridet. Machina infidi mundi
Attamen his antiqua liberalitate constituta sunt præmia, vt miferis satiatis
justitia videatur habere vigorem, & illi pro intentato periculo, Liberalitas antiqua.
solatio non careant desiderato. Heu mundi error dolendus,
si esset vllus æquitatis intuitus, tantæ divitiæ pro vitaError dolendus.
mortalium deberent dari, quantæ in mortes
hominum videntur effundi.
