But it may chance to this they will say: These things may sometime happen in the best governed commonwealths, yea, and against the magistrates’ wills: and besides, there be good laws made to punish such.  I grant it be so: but by what good laws (I would know) have these great mischiefs been punished amongst them?  Petrus Aloisius, after he had done that notorious act that I spake of, was always cherished in his father’s bosom, Pope Paul the Third, and made his very derling.  Diasius, after he had murdered his own brother, was delivered by the Pope’s means, to the end he might not be punished by good laws.  John Casus, the Archbishop of Beneventum, is yet alive, yea, and liveth at Rome, even in the eyes and sight of the most holy father.
