EMBLEMA XXXIII.

Stercora quod porcis, asinis quod carduus, hoc est
Barbaries nostris asinis porcisque Magistris.[1]

As dung to pigs, as a thistle to donkey, such is savageness to Magistri, our donkeys and pigs.

Notes:

1.  Magistri are Scholastics, theologians within the Roman Catholic tradition, a criticism of vain theology.
