The Dance of Death, by Hans Holbein

XXI.

The Preacher

Der Predicant.

Væ qui dicitis malum bonum, & bonum malū, ponentes tenebras lucem, & lucem tenebras, ponentes amarum dulce, & dulce in amarum. — Isaiæ xv.

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

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.
