From Martin Luther's Life of Himself.
"Anno 1521, as I departed from
Worms (said Luther) and not far from
Kisenacli, was taken prisoner. I was
lodged in the castle of VVartburg, my
l'.itmos, in a chamber far from people,
where none could have access unto me,
but oncly two boyes that twice the da) c
brought me meat and drink ; now a
mong other things, they brought me
hasel-nuts, which I put into a box, and
sometimes I used to crack and eat them.
In the night times, my gentleman the
Devil came and got the nuts out of the
box and cracked them against one of
the bed posts, making a very great
noise and rambling about my bed, but
I regarded him nothing at all, when af
terwards I began to slumber, then be
kept such a racket and rambling upon
the chamber stairs, as if many i mply
hogsheads and barrels had been tuu -bled
down : and although 1 knew that
the stairs were strongly guarded with
iron bars, so that no passage was cither
up or down, yet I rose and went to
wards the stairs to sec what the matter
was, but finding the door fast shut, I
said, nrt thou there ? so be there still, I
committed myself to Christ, my Lord
and Saviour, of whom it is written,
Omnia suhjreisti pedibus rjust and then
hid me down to rest again.
" At such times (said Luther) when 1
could not be rid ol the Devil, with Ut
tcringsentences out of the Holie Scrip
ture, then I made him often flic wtth
jeering and ridiculous words ami terms;
I have recorded my sins in thy regis
ter ; I said likewise unto him, Devil ! if
Christ s blood, which were shed for my
sins, be not suiTu imt, then I desire thee,
that thou wouldst praie to God for me.
H hen he finde-ih me idle (said Luther)
and that I have nothing in hand, then
he is very busie.and before I am aware
he Avringcth fr ,m me a bitter sweat ;
but when I offered him the pointed
spear, that is, God's word, then he fii
eth, yet before he goeth, he maketh
mcbloodie armed, or else giveth me a
grievous hurry cane. When at first I
beg,m to write against the Pope, and
that the Gospel went on, then the De
vil laid himself strongly therein, he
ceased not to ramble and rage about.
for he willingly would luve preserved
pu'gatorie at Magdcburgh,andiNr
sum animarum. Tor, there was a cit
izen whose child died, for which he
refused to have Vigilia and soul-mas-es
to be sung, then the Devil plaid his
freaks, came every night about twelve
of the clock into the chamber where
the child died and made a whining like
si young rhilde. The good citiz.cn he
injj therewith full of sorrow, knew not
what course to take. The Popish
priests cried out and said O now, you
see" how it goeth when Vigils arc not
held and solemnized. Sic. Whereup
on, the citizen sent to me tsaid Luther)
desiring my advice therein, (lor ny
sermon which lately before I preached,
touching this sentence, they have Mo
ses and the Prophrts, was gone out in
print, which the citizen had read,) then i
I wrote unto him Irom u irtembrrg,
and advised him nt to sulFcr any Vi
gils at all to he held, for he might be
fully assured, that those were mci tly
pranks, of the devil, whereupon, the
children and servants in the house jeer
ed and contemned the Devil, and s.tid,
what doesl thou, satan ? Avoid, thou
cursed spirit, and get thee gone to the
place where thou oughtest to be, into
the pit of hell, fcc. Now, as the De
vil marked their ontcmpt, he left off
his game and came there r.o more.
14 A gentleman had'a fair young wife,
which died and was buried. Not long
after, the gentleman and his srrvart
l)ing together in one chamber, his
dead wife in the night time approach
ed into the chamber, and leaned her
self upon the gentleman's bed, like as
if she. hd heen desirous to speak with
him. The servant (seeing the same
t'vti nr three nights one after another)
askedh'u master, whether he knew, that
every night a woman in white apparel,
rami unto his bed? The gentleman
said no: I sleep soundly (said he) and
e nothing. When night approached,
tJic gentleman, considering the same,
bid waking in his bed. Then the wo
ruin appeared unto him, and came hard
to his bed side. The gentleman de
manded who she was ? She answered, I
am your wife. He eaid, my wife is
dead and buried. She s.tid, true: by
reason of your swearing and sins I
died ; but if you would take me again,
and would also abstain from swearing
one particular oath, which commonly
you use, then I would he your wife
again. He said, I am content to per
form what you desire. Whereupon
his dead wife remained with him, ruled
his house, hid w ith him, ate and drunk
with him, and had children together.
Now it fell out, that on a time the grn
tlcman had guests, and his wife alter
supper was to fetch out of his chest
somcbanquetingstuff : shestayed some
what long, her husband (forgetting him
self) was moved thereby to swear his
accustomed oath ; whereupon the no
man vanished that instant. Now see
ing she returned not again, they went
up into the chamber to see vvhat was
become of her. There they found the
gown which she wore, half lying with
in the chest, and half without ; but she
was never seen afterwards. 'X his did
the Devil (said Luther) he can trans
form himself into the bhapc of a man

Lmbarking thence upon the Lake of

"Under the consulship of Fubius
and Vitcllius, the Phtr.iix re-appeared
in Egypt. Its return gave orcaMon to
many dissertations of the most learn
-d men of this country and Greece.
1 am going to report the facts moss
generally acknowledged, and some oth
ers less sure, but which may he useful
to know. The I't '.a'nix is consecrated
to the sun, and all Urse who have de
scribed agree in giving to it figure
and plumage different from other birds.
They have varied upon the duratiou
of its life ; the greater part making it
five huiiJred years, and some fourteen
hundred and sixty-one years. I hcy
assure us that the first Pbcrnix appeared
in the reign of Seostric, the second
under Amasis, and another under
I'toli my, the third of the Macedonian
r.ue of the kings of Egypt; that all
three took their flight towards the city
of Heliopolis, in the midst of an im
mense flock of other birds, attracted
by the singularity of their form. It
must, however, be aeknowledged that
we are at default in this antiquity.
Dttwren Ptolemy and Tiberius there
ii not quite two hundred and fifty ye. rs,
which has made some to believe that
this last was net the true Phoc: x of
Arabia, having nothing of the charac
ters which ancient tradition gives te
the others. In efTect it is said that
the Phanix, when the number of it j
years have revolved, and its end ap
proaches, builds in its country a nest
which it impregnates. In a little time
a young Phanix comes out, whose firs:
care, when it comes to maturity, is to
perform the funeral rites of its parent,
and it does not perform this project
rashly. It is not until after having
essayed its force in long flights, and
when its vigor becomes equal to the
burthen and the journey, and having
charged itself with myrrh, that it takes
the body of its parent and carries it to
the altar of the sun, where it burns it.
All this may be uncertain and fabu
lous ; nevertheless, there is no d-.ubt
but that this bird sometimes appears in
It would be highly gratifying if any
of our learned cotemporaries, Doctor
M fur example, would treat us
with a supplementary dissertation up
on this classical bird, and let us know
when and how often it has appeared
in Egypt since the days cf Tiberius
Coes-ir, the time referred to b Tacitus.
Certainly the historical antiquity of
the race of this rare bird, is much be
yond that of that rare fish the "Squ.dus
Maximus," which the learned Doctor
has been unable to carry beyond the
time of the prophet Jonas.

provoking, after I had hammered my
brains to long to produce something fit to
