The Dance of Death, by Hans Holbein

XXXI.

The Knight

Der Ritter.

Subito morientur, & in media nocte turbabuntur populi, & auferent violentum absqe manu. — Iob xxxiiii.

THE KNIGHT.
Death, in cuirass and chain-mail, runs him through the body.

Peuples soubdain s’esleuront

A lencontre de l’inhumain,

Et le uiolent osteront

D’auec eulx sans force de main.
