Saint Matthew: Margaritas AntePorcos

L'Evangile dit : Nolite mittere margaritas ante porcos, ne jetez pas les perles aux pourceaux. Ce langage figuré signifie: N'essayez pas de faire sentir les beautés immatérielles à ceux qui sont appesantis par la matière.Margaritas ante porcos (des perles devant des pourceaux) est un proverbe fréquemment employé, surtout lorsqu'il est question d'œuvres d'art jugées par un public ignorant ou grossier.

Deux oisifs des boulevards s'étaient permis de suivre et d'interpeller deux dames qui rentraient à pied chez elles.
— Mesdames, vous êtes des perles, disaient-ils.
— Oui, Messieurs, répondit l'une des dames, margaritas ante porcos.
Nolite sanctum dare canibus nec mittatis margaritas ante porcos ne conculcent pedibus & conuersi dirumpant vos.

NOTE: Extract from the Sermon on the Mount. (Mathieu, VII, 6) "Do not give dogs what is holy ; and do not throw pearls before swine, lest they trample them under foot and turn to attack you "How much also, from the present moment on, can be shown to us of the personages that God the Creator has wished to reveal to us with the help of pictures generated by creative imagination, thus revealing us some secrets of the future in accord with the judiciary astrology, like it was in the past, when a certain might or voluntary faculty would come in then like the flame of the fire appears and that, by inspiration, we could achieve to distinct those that are of divine origin from those that are human.
