The Dance of Death, by Hans Holbein


The Abbot

Der Abt.

Ipse morietur. Quia nõ habuit disciplinam, & in multitudine stultitiæ suæ decipietur. — Prover. v.

Death, having despoiled the Abbot of mitre and crozier, hales him along unwilling, and threatening his enemy with his breviary.

Il mourra. Car il n’a receu

En soy aulcune discipline,

Et au nombre sera deceu

De folie qui le domine.
