Seite 124 - Augustinum episcopum perduxerit, dicite ei quid diu mecum de causa Anglorum cogitans tractavi, videlicet, quia fana idolorum destrui in uadem gente minime debeant ; sed ipsa quae in eis sunt idola destruantur ; aqua benedicta fiat, in eisdem fanis aspergatur ; altaria construantur, reliquiae ponantur.

Seite 109 - ... fecisti ut quaedam mulieres in quibusdam temporibus anni facere solent, ut in domo tua mensam praeparares, et tuos cibos et potum cum tribus cultellis supra mensam poneres, ut si venissent tres illae sorores quas antiqua posteritas et antiqua stultitia Parcas nominavit, ibi reficerentur; et tulisti divinae pietati potestatem suam et nomen suum, et diabolo tradidisti, ita dico, ut crederes illas quas tu dicis esse sorores tibi posse aut hie aut in futuro prodesse.

Seite 17 - ... coeunt, nisi quid fortuitum et subitum incidit, certis diebus, cum aut inchoatur luna aut impletur; nam agendis rebus hoc auspicatissimum initium 5 credunt. nec dierum numerum, ut nos, sed noctium computant. sic constituunt, sic condicunt: nox ducere diem videtur.

Seite 67 - It fell about the Martinmas time, And a gay time it was then, When our goodwife got puddings to make, And she's boild them in the pan.
Seite 140 - Incipiebant autem annum ab octavo Calendarum Januariarum die, ubi nunc natale Domini celebramus. Et ipsam noctem nunc nobis sacrosanctam, tune gentili vocabulo Modranicht, id est, matrum noctem appellabant : ob causam ut suspicamur ceremoniarum, quas in ea pervigiles agebant.
Seite 124 - Et quia boves solent in sacrificio daemonum multos occidere, debet eis etiam hac de re aliqua sollemnitas immutari ; ut die dedicationis, vel natalitii sanctorum martyrum, quorum illic reliquiae ponuntur, tabernacula sibi circa easdem ecclesias, quae ex fanis commutatae sunt, de ramis arborum faciant, et religiosis conviviis sollemnitatem celebrent ; nee diabolo iam animalia immolent, et ad laudem Dei in esu suo animalia occidant, et donatori omnium de satietate sua gratias referant ; ut dum eis...
