Page 50 - Deum nullo modo ambigimus confitendu-m. accipe etiam in hymno sacri antistitis et confessoris Ambrosii, quem in natali Dominico catholica per omnes Italiae et Galliae regiones persultat ecclesia : procede de thalamo tuo, geminae gigans substantiae.
Page 14 - Vngi quoque necesse est eum qui baptizatus est ut accepto chrismate id est unctione esse unctus dei et habere in se gratiam Christi possit.
Page 51 - Egressus eius a patre, | regressus eius ad patrem, | Excursus usque ad inferos, | recursus ad sedem dei.
