Full text: Trigault, Nicolas: Regni Chinensis descriptio

NIC. TRIGAVT. pro facultatibus fortuniſque, & ſæpe ſupra vires aſſurgunt.

Lugubris Sinarum veſtis non
pulla, ſed candida eſt. In luctu pa-
rentum filii cannabina veſte aſper-
rima in duuntur, primis ſaltem mẽ-
ſibus; & ipſa forma talaris tunicæ,
pilei, calceorum ſatis abſona, pri-
moque aſpectu miſerabilis: fune
quoque prope nautico renes cin-
gunt, ad eum modum, quo Patres
è D. Franciſci familia ſolent. Invio-
labili conſuetudine receptum eſt,
ut luctus patris aut matris in trien-
nium protrahatur. Cujus rei cau-
ſam in ſuis libris reddunt hanc, ut
ſuis parentibus, qui primo ætatis
triennio eos ulnis geſtaverunt, tan-
toque labore educarunt, vicem re-
pendant. In cæterorum propin-
quorum luctu contractior eſt lu-
gendi mora, prout quiſque vici-
nior, aut remotior ſanguine cuique
fuerit: alias enim annuo ſpatio,
alios trimeſtri terminatur.
