Christe was . . ’ ‘Excessus’ signiWes ‘ecstasy’. The word was so used by St Bernard, the author closest perhaps to Southwell’s heart, whose works he cited in An Epistle of Comfort; which were also his ‘solace’ during his imprisonment in the Tower. We may seem here to have returned to that the absolute reasonableness of robert southwell 39 suggestion with which we began, that Southwell, in ‘The Burning Babe’, appears to have ‘lost himself in ecstatic delight’.

Whiche phrase of speache argueth, that the more the body for him is humbled in torments, the more shall yt be partaker of hys brightnesse in glorye.
