The coming restoration of the Divinely Ordained Authority of the Holy Roman Emperor without the loss of flocks or ears of corn.
or the Sphinx, persuade you less
because, like theirs, they cloud your mind.
'Events soon to occur shall be the Naiads
that solve this hard enigma
without the loss of flocks or ears of corn.
'Mark them, and, as they come from me,
set these words down for those
who live the life that is a race to death.
Beatrice knows that her DXV prophecy is obscure and she reassures Dante that when events unfold the prophecy of hers will become clear. Events will solve this hard enigma. The consummation of this greyhound (DXV) prophecy is without loss of flocks meaning no great loss of life by nuclear war or swine flu or any other pandemic. It also means no loss of ears of corn meaning no world-wide famine no world- wide economic depression etc. The restoration of the Divinely Ordained Holy Roman Emperor the DXV will take place soon, and the sure sign of this coming event is world-wide economic stability and certainly no world-wide nuclear holocaust that is expected by the majority of men. This is the meaning of the above words of Beatrice. This world view is at odds with the majority of men. Most men expect the worst. Here is a few examples:
LewRockwell.com is a web page devoted to the idea of the coming world- wide economic depression. These guys are gaga for very type of financial collapse you can think of.
On the swine flu scare in which billions upon billions are to die:AQer Kopp does Swine Flu piece for L’Osservatore Romano
The coming economic collapse etc…AQ The Impending Economic Chastisement
Most of you are aware of these fears. I will take the complete opposite view and use the Vision of Dante to discern the coming restoration of the Divinely Ordained Authority of the Holy Roman Emperor without the loss of flocks or ears of corn.
