Illustrated: Agnus in Templo et Lupus


M0311 - M0312 - M0313
312. Agnus in Templo et Lupus. Lupus agnum insequebatur; is vero in templum confugit. Porro cum lupus evocaret, aiens quod, si sacerdos eum caperet, statim templi illius numini sacrificaret, “Optatius est mihi,” respondit agnus, “Dei victimam esse quam a te dilacerari.”




M0312 = Perry261. Source: De Furia 107. This is Perry 261. Compare the fable of the wolf and the lamb who has taken refuge with the goats in #88.
