Filippo Picinelli (1604 - c.1679) was an Augustinian monk living in Milan. He believed that the world is a symbolic book to be read and learned from. He wrote Mundus Symbolicus, an encyclopedia of symbols.

Mundus Symbolicus 5,34Edit

Latin originalEdit

Monoceros, dum cornu suum aquis, bufonum aut serpentium venedo infectis, immergit, mox salubres illas ac suaves reddit. Unde cornu intra aquas tincto, epigraphen habet; NOXIA PELLIT. Certe Christus[1], intra turbidas ac venenatas passionis suae undsa mersus, omnem ab ea malignitatem sustulit; adeo ut nulli non sit suavissima, ac summe defideranda. Theofridus[2], Abbas Esthernacerisis, ait, De amavitudine sua amarissima dulcissimam dulcedinem tranifudit in omnia acerbissima Sanctoru cuius eunque supplicii genera, et carnis, per illustrationem Spiritus Sanctificare, quantacunque et qualracunque supplicia, in corporum et animarum suavissima et saluberrima transtulit oblectamenta et remedia; ut quasi immutato et converso natura ordine, omnes cruciatuum materia, electorum corporibus adhibitae ardentius appelantur, quum exquisitissime epulae, quam opulentissima totius mundi delitiae. Eodem plane argumento P. Columbus aquis, a Monocerote contactis, inscripsit; SINE NOXA BIBUNTUR.
