Æneas Sylvius, tituli sanctæ Sabinæ presbyter cardinalis, ac Senensis episcopus, in sua Germania, cum Augustæ Vindelicæ mentionem facit, incessat, libuit hic subjicere: judicium esto apud lectorem, veri et publicæ utilitatis amantem. “Transimus,' inquit, ‘Campidonam et Memmingam, illustria oppida: Augustam Vindelicam (sanctus Udalricus huic præsidet, qui papam arguit de concubinis), ad Lycum fluvium jacentem:' qui vixit anno nongentesimo, ætatis suæ Lxxxu.”
The passage of Æneas Sylvius is in his Descriptio de Ritu, Situ, Moribus et Conditione Germanice, and will be found in p. 1053 of his works, Fol. Basil. 1571. where however the concluding words of the above, qui vixit, &c. are not found. But Chemnitius, quoted by Bishop Hall, states, that "Æneas Sylvius writes him to have died anno 900, and in the year of his age 83.” (It cannot be doubted that vixit is an error.) See Bishop Hall's Honour of the Married Clergy, Book III. Sect. ii. In that and the following section the bishop vindicates the genuineness of the letter against the cavils of his popish adversary, summing up the argument for it in the following particulars: “Whereas their own cardinal, Æneas Sylvius, almost two hundred years ago, mentions it, and reports the argument of it; whereas it is yet extant, as Illyricus, in the libraries of Germany; whereas Hedio found an ancient copy of it in Holland ; and our John Bale, Archbishop Parker, Bishop Jewell, John Fox, had a copy of it, remarkable for reverend antiquity, in aged parchment, here in England, which I hope to have the means to produce; whereas, lastly, the very style importeth age.”_While thus vindicating the letter itself, the bishop further remarks on one particular in it which has been made a ground of objection: “As for the number of children's heads, I can say no more for it than he can against it. This history shall be more worth to us than his denial. But this I dare say, that I know persons both of credit and honour, that saw betwixt fifty and threescore cast up out of the little mote of an abbey where I now live. Let who list cast up the proportion.” Ib. Sect. ii.-Errors in numbers are of such obvious occurrence, that they can seldom seriously affect the credit of an ancient document.
P. 26. Pambo. The circumstance here recorded of him will be found in Socrates, Eccles. Hist. Lib. IV. c. 23. Παμβω δε αγράμματος ών προσήλθε τινι επί τω διδαχθήναι ψαλμόν. ακούσας δε τον πρωτον στίχων του λή ψαλμού, του λέγοντος, Είπα, φυλάξω τας οδούς μου, του μη αμαρτάνειν με έν γλώσση μου δευτέρου άκουσαι μη ανεχόμενος ανεχώρησεν, αρκείσθαι φήσας τούτω τω ενί στίχω, εαν δυνηθω έργω αυτον εκμαθείν. εγκαλέσαντος δε του παραδεδωκότος τον στίχον, διατί εξαμηνιαίου παραδραμόντος του χρόνου μη έωράκει αυτον, απεκρίνατο ότι του ψαλμου τον στίχον ούπω τα έργω εξέμαθον. μετα ταυτα δε πολλούς επιβιους χρόνους, πρός τινα των γνωρίμων ερωτήσαντα ει τον στίχον εξέμαθεν, Εν όλους, έφη, εννεακαίδεκα έτεσι μόλις αυτον πράττειν εξέμαθον.
