Misteriosa profezia sulle eresie dell’altrettanto misterioso Ignatius che, a dispetto del titolo, non penso davvero rappresenti la traduzione di un testo francese, comunque manoscritto, perché non ho identificato opere a stampa. Non ha carattere astrologico, fatta eccezione per quanto si legge al verso di A3: The Philosophers have given their unite astipulation, & withall [sic] the Astrologians have affirmed in their solid assertions, that when Saturne hath any conjunction with Jupiter, great wars and bloudy times shall ensue, and I am sure their opinions have not proved fallible in this respect.
