Doubtless in the language of God's Spirit, which searcheth the heart, he that dispenseth with an oath of this nature especially solemnly taken, is greater than he by whom men swear; and is in heart and deed so esteemed, by such as acknowledge his authority in thus dispensing, or sue unto him for like dispensations.
But as if wilful and open perjury, without deep and hellish hypocrisy, were a sin too plain and simple for the Man of sin to countenance; the legate z first invests this besotted prince with the glorious title of Defensor Ecclesice Romance ; and in witness hereof delivers him a sword, consecrated by his holiness's own hand, ere he make him forswear himself, and forsake his God, who hath now forsaken him, and for his sin scarce expiated unto this day plagued the realm of France. For as the judicious historian who hath the articles of this perfidious confederacy yet in his custody well observes a , this was the root of all the miseries have since befallen that flourishing kingdom, and by God's just judgments exposed it to the insolencies of the Spaniard, through their means especially that wrought the king to breach of his oath with Spain for entering this new confederacy with the pope.
