The Dance of Death, by Hans Holbein

XII.

The Bishop

Der Bischof.

Percutiam pastorem, & dispergentur oues. — xxvi. Mar. xiiii.

THE BISHOP.
The sun is setting, and Death leads the aged Bishop from the sorrowing shepherds of his flock.

Le pasteur aussi frapperay,

Mitres & crosses renuersées.

Et lors quand ie l’attrapperay,

Seront ses brebis dispersées.
