Lettering note

Lettering continues: "Ibi nichil proderit multa allega/ Neque excipere neque replica/ Nec ad Apostolicam sedem appella/ Reus condempabitur sciens bene qua// Cogitate miseri qui et quales es/ Quid in hoc iudicio dicere potes/ Quo nec erit codici locus nec diges/ Christus iudex dæmō actor reus tes. Phillippus Galle excude". At the end of the three stanzas are the words "lis", "re" and "tis" respectively. Around these verses in the centre are quotations from the Bible: Isaiah 13.9-10; 2 Peter 3.7-8; Revelation 6.16, Luke 23.30; Revelation 20.13; 6.13; Isaiah 15; Isaiah 65.5; Matthew 24.41; Joel 2.2
