This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1888 edition. Excerpt: ... satcula saiculorum. Amen' If for spiritu sancto we substitute filio, we have the true Latin ending of Reason's sermon in full. To it, however, the preacher adds a pious wish for the welfare of those who follow his advice. Compare--'And whan this frere had sayd al his entent, With qui cum patre forth his way he went.' Chaucer, Somp. Tale, 25. 61. 'Then ran Repentance, and repeated Reason's theme, and made Will weep water with his eyes.' Will means the author himself, who calls himself Will in many other places, in the same off-hand manner. 62. Superbia. One of the commonest of subjects in old authors is a description of the Seven Deadly Sins. See Chaucer's Persones Tale, pasiim; an anonymous poem called ' Gyf me lysens to lyue in Ease, ' and a poem of The Mirror of the Periods of Man's Life, both edited for the Early English Text Society by Mr. Furnivall, the first in Political, Religious, and Love Poems, p. 215; the second in Hymns to the Virgin and Christ, p. 58. In these, the opposttes of the sins are given, as here enumerated. (1) Superbia, Pride; opposed to Humilitas, Humility. (2) Luxuria, Lechery; Caslitas, Chastity. (3) Jnvidia, Envy; Caritas, Love. (4) Ira, Anger; Patientia, Patience. (5) Avaritia, Coveitise or Covetousness; Eleemosyna, Largeness or Bounty. (6) Gula, Gluttony; Abstinentia, Abstinence, Measure, or Moderation. (7) Accidia, Sloth; Vigilantia, Business. Our author himself supplies names for the opposites, in Pass. v. ll. 629-632; but he puts Pees for the opposite of Anger, and Patience for that of Sloth. Of all the Seven Sins, Pride is the chief, and the root and spring of the rest. It is expressed in Shakespeare by ambition: --'Cromwell, I charge thee, fling away ambition; By that sin fell the angels.' Henry VIII, iii. 2, 441....
