The Dance of Death, by Hans Holbein

XXIII.

The Mendicant Friar

Der Mönch.

Sedentes in tenebris, & in vmbra mortis, vinctos in mendicitate. — Psal. cvi.

THE MENDICANT FRIAR.
Death seizes him just as his begging box and bag are filled.

Toy qui n’as soucy, ny remord

Sinon de ta mendicité,

Tu fierras a l’umbre de Mort

Pour t’ouster de necessité.
