Herbert of Romans For the preaching of the cross against the Saracens
|1. ||It must be noted that there are six [reasons] which should cause
[people] to take the cross against the Saracens: the first is zeal for divine
honour, the second is zeal for the Christian law, the third is brotherly
love, the fourth is devotion to the Holy Land, the fifth is the example of
those who went before, the sixth is the status of this war.|
|2. ||Subject matter for the above. Theme: Isaiah 6: Holy, holy, holy is the
Lord God of hosts. See the work 'About the Preaching of the Cross
against the Saracens'.|
