eorum qui in parendi conditione
nati ſunt diſſenſiones at tumultus
@oërceantur: ipſis vero qui in ſum-
mafortuna ſunt collocati, jus omne
ajunt ex voluntate, voluntatem ex
utilitate metiendam. Hanc autem
ſententiam abſurdam plane atque
naturæ contrariam auctoritatis ſibi
nonnihil conciliaſſe haud adeo mi-
rum est, cum ad morbum commu-
nem humani generis, quo ſicut vi-
tia ita vitiorum patrocinia ſecta-
mur, acceſſerint adulantium artes
quibus omnis potestas obnoxia est. Sed contra extiterunt nullo non ſœ-
culo viriliberi, ſapientes, religioſi,
qui falſam hanc perſuaſionem ani-
mis ſimplicium evellerent, cœteros
autem ejus defenſores impudentiœ
convincerent. Deum quippe eſſe
monstrabant conditorem rectorem-
que univerſi, imprimis autem bu-
manœ naturœ parentem, quam ideo,
non uti cœtera animantia, in ſpe-
cies diverſas, variaque diſcrimina
