Faincte Religion.

Une Paillarde, en ung siege Royal
Portant manteau de pourpre Imperial,[1]
Qui de son vin praesente à pleine couppe
Gisante autour, de gens yvres grand trouppe.
Est Babylonne attrayante en beaulté,
Qui gens deçoipt par faincte saincteté.

Notes:

1.   See Revelation 17:3 ff., which has influenced the illustration.
