Owen, Poem: Christ on the Cross

John Owen (Iohannes Audoenus)
1564-1622 AD
Trans RMBullard 
Latin [Modern Era]

    In medio Christus latronum quando pependit,
[When Christ hung, in the lot of highway robbers,]

         aut numquam, aut 'virtus' tunc fuit 'in medio.'
[either never was, until that very point in time, was there 'virtue among their lot.']
