The Dance of Death

XIV. - The Abbott

THE ABBOT.
THE ABBOT.

[72]

Ipse morietur. Quia n§ habuit disciplinam, & in multitudine stultitiŠ suŠ decipietur.

Prover. v.

Il mourra. Car il n'a receu

En soy aulcune discipline,

Et au nombre sera deceu

De folie qui le domine.

Death, having despoiled the Abbot of mitre and crozier, hales him along unwilling, and threatening his enemy with his breviary.

The descent to Hades is much the same from whatever place we start. -- Anaxagoras
