Contributing Institution: Southern Methodist University Bridwell Library and Ohio State University Libraries Description: Pope Alexander III treads on the neck of Emperor Frederick Barbarossa. A conversation takes place between them in Latin in which the Pope says: "Super aspidem & basiliscum ambulabis, & conculcabis leonem & draconem [You will walk over the asp and basilisk and trample underfoot the lion and the dragon]". (This statement is derived from Psalm 91:13.) A cartouche in the lower right gives Frederick’s response: "Non tibi, sed Petro [Not to you, but Peter]", and the Pope’s reply: “Et Mihi & Petro" [Both me and Peter]." Revised design of Luborsky and Ingram 11222/2 and 11223/2, which appear in all four of the early English editions (1563, 1570, 1576, and 1583). JPEG file (483 KB).
