The Dance of Death

XXI. - The Peacher

THE PREACHER.
THE PREACHER.

[84]

VŠ qui dicitis malum bonum, & bonum malū, ponentes tenebras lucem, & lucem tenebras, ponentes amarum dulce, & dulce in amarum.

IsaiŠ xv.

Mal pour uous qui ainsi osez

Le mal pour le bien nous blasmer,

Et le bien pour mal exposez,

Mettant auec le doulx l'amer.

Death, in a stole, stands in the pulpit behind the fluent [37] Preacher, and prepares to strike him down with a jaw-bone.

A good death does honour to a whole life. -- Petrarch
