EMBLEME XXXIIII.

Ces asnes deux pieds, ces pourceaux tant immondes,
Mataeologiens, pestes de mille mondes,[1]
D’ignorance font cas: c’est leur vie & pasture,
Comme chardons l’asne & au pourceau l’ordure.

Notes:

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