Summary

Harangue delivered at the opening of a Diet at Augsburg, convened by Maximilian I, which turned the diet against the Venetian republic. Hélian's invective is vehement and at times absurd, as he portrays the Venetians with a variety of unflattering metaphors, calling them foxes, lions, serpents, pirates, monsters, and harpies; he also accuses the Venetians of having thwarted the League of Cambrai and thus hindered the war against the Turks, and accordingly calls the Venetians non-Christians who mock the French and Germans and plan to take over Europe. Preceded by an introductory letter from Jacobus Bannicius, an editor, signed on 1 May 1510. Following the speech is a poem in 142 elegiac couplets on lion hunting, featuring the king of France and the king of Aragon. Possibly copied from a printed version published by Johann Otmar.
