De Gallis et Hispanis inter se bellantibus
‘On the French and the Spanish fighting one another’
Marko Marulić, Marko Pecinić
Date: Approximately 1521
Original Language: Latin
This is a short poem of only 12 lines, featuring France and Spain as hatefully warring nations who should instead join forces against Muḥammad, who is enraged against the Christians. In his commentary on the poem, Novaković suggests that it might have been written ‘ca. 1521?’ (Opera omnia, vol. 17, p. 164).
