Textes (traduction Isabelle Fabre)

Triple
Conditio nature defuit La condition de la nature a fait défaut
In filio quem virgo genuit ; Dans le fils que la Vierge a engendré,
Contagio sola nam caruit, Car de la souillure elle seule fut exemptée,
Quam vitio nemo defloruit ; Elle que par vice nul n’a défloré.
Et ideo partu non doluit ; C’est pourquoi en enfantant elle ne souffrit pas ;
Hec actio patrem non habuit ; L’acte n’eut pas de père ;
Hec proprio dono promeruit, Elle fut digne d’une grâce particulière,
Ludibio que non succubuit. Elle qui à la dérision n’a pas succombé.
Hec ratio mundi desipuit ; Voici que la raison du monde déraisonne ;
Hic questio scrutari renuit ; Ici la question refuse l’examen ;
Solutio filio Dei sic placuit ; Telle fut la résolution qui plut au fils de Dieu ;
Devotio dubio finem proposuit ; La pitié a mis un terme au doute ;
Redemptio saucio plus Ade profuit La rédemption a plus profité à Adam blessé
Commissio quam Eve nocuit. Que la faute d’Eve ne lui a nui.

Double
O natio nephandi generis, O nation impie,
Cur gratie doniss abuteris ? Pourquoi abuses-tu des dons de la grâce ?
Multiplici reatu laberis, Tu trébuches dans de multiples fautes,
Dum litteram legis amplecteris Lorsque tu embrasses la lettre de la Loi
Et littere medullam deseris. Et abandonnes la moëlle de la lettre.
Gens perfida, cecata deperis ; Peuple infidèle, tu péris aveuglé ;
Si Moysen consideraveris Si tu considères Moïse,
Nec faciem vedere poteris, Tu ne pourras voir son visage ;
Si mistice non intellexeris, Si tu ne comprends pas selon le mystère,
In facie cornuta falleris. Son visage cornu t’égarera.
Considera, misera, quare dampnaberis, Considère, misérable, pourquoi tu es damné :
Quod litteram properam interpretaveris. Tu as hâtivement interprété la lettre.
Convertere propere, nam si converteris, Convertis-toi diligemment, car si tu te convertis,
Per gratiam veniam culpe mereberis. Par la grâce tu mériteras le pardon de ta faute.

Teneur (séquence de Saint-Victor de Paris)


Simplex in essentia Simple en son essence
septiformis gratia septiforme en sa grâce
nos reformet spiritus. Que l’Esprit nous transforme !
Cordis lustret latebras Que la lumière jaillie du Ciel
et carnis illecebras éclaire les replis de notre coeur
lux emissa celitus. Et les purifie des tentations de la chair !
Lex precessit in figura La loi qui en est la figure

lex penalis, lex obscura, la loi qui punit, la loi obscure,


lumen evangelicum. A précédé la lumière évangélique.
Spiritalis intellectus, Que le sens spirituel
litterali fronde tectus, couvert du feuillage de la lettre,
prodeat in publicum ! se manifeste au grand jour !
Lex de monte populo, Du haut d’une montagne, la loi est donnée
paucis in cenaculo au peuple ; au cénacle, c’est à un petit nombre
noua datur gratia. Qu’est donnée la grâce nouvelle.
Situs docet nos locorum Les circonstances nous enseignent
preceptorum vel donorum ce qui des prescriptions ou des dons
que sit eminentia. est supérieur.
