Marginal thinking: 07b. Thielman Kerver (French)

The priest has "eaten the living and the dead".
Thielmann Kerver F, Priest
Death "stabs and bites" the Carthusian
Thielmann Kerver F, Carthusian

Thielman Kerver has published a variant of Simon Vostre's dance with 66 figures in Latin. The same series also exists in Dutch and Spanish.

Yet another version of the same 66 dancers is in French.

There are a few echoes from La Danse Macabre, when the parish priest says: »I ate the living and the dead«, by which he probably means that he earned his living by ministering to the living as well as the dead.

There are also echoes of La Vie de l'Homme, when Death "stabs and bites" the Carthusian: »Tout ŕ mon aise je mords et aiguillonne«.

Apart from these few and faint echoes, the text must be considered original. I have transcribed the text and tried to translate it into English.

Click any picture to jump into the dance, go to a page dedicated to this dance, or leave Kerver and go to Jacobinus Suigus.

The next chapter is about Jacobinus Suigus, who placed his dance at the bottom of the pages.

The previous subject was Thielman Kerver in Dutch.
