The Juror
Heidelberg's dance of death, abbot

Death to The Juror

Das ortil yst alzo gegeben.
Das ir lenger nicht sullet leben.
Her iurist das tut des todis craft.
Mogit ir zo beweist ewr meisterschaft
The sentence is given thus
that you shall not live any longer,
Mr. Juror, such does the power of Death.
If you can, then prove your mastery.
Keyn appelliren czu deszir czeit
Hilft vor todis harten streyth
Her obirwint myt seynem geslecht
Das geistliche und das wertliche recht
No appealing at this time
helps against Death's hard dispute.
He defeats - with his kin -
the ecclesiastical and the worldly law.

Compare the text with Basel (especially Kleinbasel).
