Epigraph
ich bin nit Lutherus, ich bin Theophrastus, und bin der Theophrastus, den ir zu Basel Cacophrastum hießen . . . und bin ich euch Cacophrastus nit genug gewachsen, ich sag euch, meine schuchriemen wissen mer dan ir und alle euer schulmeister, Galenus und Avicenna, und all eure hohenschul. wolt ir das nicht lassen war sein, legent curam utramque auf die wag und secht wie die wag ausschlage.
I am not Luther, I am Theophrastus, the Theophrastus you called 'Cacophrastus' in Basel. . . And if I am not match enough for you as Cacophrastus, I tell you, my shoestrings know more than you and all your schoolmasters, Galen and Avicenna, and all your high schools. If you can't accept that as true, lay both cures on the scales and see how they tip.
