O rex et o pontifex, quorum utrumque Dei apprehendit emulatio! Hic zelat populi sui pacem, alter vero cleri sui libertatem.

O King, O Pontiff, both of whom vying with each other have the zeal to be the equal of God, which has taken hold of both of them! one desirous for the peace of his people, the other for the liberty of his clergy.
