EMBLEMA XLI

Lunam interveniens ceu terrae[1] corpus opacum
Atra inficit caligine.
Sic interveniens hominum sapientia, purum
Ecclesiae infuscat iubar.

When the body of the earth, casting a shadow, gets in the way, it stains the moon with gloomy blackness, so when the wisdom of men gets in the way, it tarnishes the pure radiance of the Church.

Notes:
