Pour avoir leu longuement l’escriture,
L’homme souvent en vain se glorifie.
Car science enfle: & qui n’a que lecture,
N’a pour cela l’esprit qui vivifie,
Ouvre le sens, & le coeur mortifie,
Chassant d’iceux tenebres d’ignorance.
Où est l’esprit, charité edifie.
Où il n’est point, il n’y a qu’arrogance.

SCIENTIA INFLAT

Knowledge puffeth up (1 Corinthians 8:1)

lxxxvii.

Lectio quid prodest Legis, si turgida fastu
Reppleat insano pectora cognitio?
Ast tenebras adsit jubaris qui discutit ortu
Spiritus, & verè dogmata clara facit.

What is the use of reading the Law, if knowledge fills inflated breasts with arrogance? But may the spirit be present which banishes darkness through the rising of the heavenly light and truly makes doctrine clear.
