La devise de foy.

XCV.

Honneur de fin pourpre vestu,
Touchant en main à Verité,
Entre eux deux Amour de vertu,[1]
Qui a l’art de Venus quité.
L’histoire est de fidelité,
Estant par vray dire produite,
D’amour nourrie en purité,
Et sous crainte d’honneur conduite.

On dit que la Foy est composee de trois: dont
Link to an image of this page  Link to an image of this page  [I5v p138] l’Honneur en est l’un, habillé de fin pourpre, lequel
joint sa dextre à la dextre de Verité: Verité, qui est
comme nue, sans aucun fard, ny embellissement recer-
ché. Aux [=Au] milieu d’eux est l’Amour chaste, ayant
une couronne de roses en sa teste, duquel nous avons
parlé en l’embleme 81, lequel est beaucoup plus beau
que l’amour lascif. Ces trois marques donc establis-
sent la Foy. La saincte Verité l’engendre, le vray
Amour la nourrit, & la reverence de l’Honneur la
fomente.

Notes:

1.  Love of Virtue (Anteros), for which see [FALd071] and [FALd081].

Mesdisance.

Sur le tombeau d’Archiloc,[1] Guespes sont,
Qui signe vray de malle bouche font.

Archiloc, Poëte Graec Iambic, en ses escriptz armé
de mesdisance, represenre tous hommes mesdisans
de parolle, ou d’escript, au reste à bien faire inutil-
les, telles que sont les Guespes, qui en grand bruit
murmurantes, picquent tresaigrement, & ne font
miel, ne cire.

Notes:

1.  Archilochus was an eighth-century BC poet, author of much (now fragmentary) verse, including satire. This last was considered in antiquity to be excessively abusive and violent. See Horace, Ars Poetica, 79; also Erasmus, Adagia, 60 (Irritare crabrones).
