Notes

  • "The sea is the origin of the demoniacal leanings of an entire people: the hazardous labour of ships, dependence on the stars, hereditary secrets, estrangement from women - the very image of the great turbulent plain itself makes man lose faith in God and all his attachment to his home; he is then in the hands of the Devil, in the sea of Satan's ruses." (Pierre de Lancre Tableau de l'inconstance des mauvais anges" 1612)
