Brocardus Monacus

(1332)

Dominican monk.

Directorium ad Passagium Faciendum.

Latin.


Adhuc magis ulterius versus meridiem sunt Ethiopes christiani, gens maxima atque potens, que quinque regna magna valde obtinet et diffusa; hii tanti sunt,[tain] validi et tam fortes, quod unum regnum [est] de istis, quod quidem vocatur Nubia, confinians cum Egipto, [quod] aliquando de soldano Bibilonie victoriam obtinuit et triumphum. Habent isti populi prophetiam quod aliquando exibunt et transilient montes illos quibus versus Egiptum nunc resident circunclusi, et cum predictis Nubianis, et qui extra prefatos montes [illos] obtinent loca sua, Egypcios et Arabes destruent et vastabunt. Mecham capient el diruent, Sepulcrum comminuent et corpus inceudent prophani ac perfidi Macometi.
