Cum praefatione Valahfridi Stroh

Series:

Michael von Albrecht

Laudat poeta multa loca pulcherrima, quae vidit visitavitque in multis orbis terrarum partibus. Alloquitur autem amicos, inter quos poetas philosophosque antiquos et novos. Quod fit et metris Horatianis et distichis elegiacis. Latine autem scribit, quia omnium gentium homines invitare vult, ut tandem inimicitias armaque deponant pacemque defendant. Ad quod litterae studiaque liberalia plurimum conferunt.

The poet praises many beautiful places he visited all over the world. Among the friends addressed there are poets and philosophers, both ancient and modern. He writes in Latin, wishing to invite human beings from all nations to banish discord and weapons and to defend peace. Liberal studies will contribute much to reach this aim.
