Quà proceres abiere pii.

Which way our godly forefathers have gone.

Comme le profete Helie fut eslevé & porté es cieus,  [M]
sus un Chariot de feu, en corps & ame: ainsi l’esprit de
sainte personne en ce monde, est eslevé & monté en haut
par un bon & ardant desir: au moyen duquel il se re-
cree en la contemplacion des celestes beautez, & ex-
cellences divines. A quoy convient ce que touche Ovide  [M]
de Pythagoras, disant:

Mente Deos adiit, & que natura negarat
Visibus humanis, oculis ea pectoris hausit.

To God in mind he had access, and look what nature hid, From fleshly eyes the same with sight, of heart he has espied.
