Antonii Rosanei Corcyrae Melenae Opus

By the incessant inquiries of those who, indeed, admiring the preservation of the small town of Corcyra Melena in my own country, and admiring it to be ascribed to the divine divinity, so often repeat from me a series of such remarkable deeds, I have determined to satisfy this in a short commentary. You are the only Diva Virgin Mother, whose help we firmly believe that there was a certainty for us in that battle, just as you did not disdain to direct your servant in all these things, so also draw your hand and pen along the paths of truth in your proclamations and thanksgivings, I pray.


Assiduis percontationibus eorum, qui conservationem opiduli Corcyrae Melenae Patriae meae miram quidem, et divino adscribendam Numini admirantes, seriem tam praeclari facinoris toties a me repetunt, hoc brevi comentariolo (3) satisfacere decrevi. Tu tantum Diva Virgo Mater, cujus opem firma fide credimus nobis eo in praelio certissimam adfuisse, sicuti servulum non es dedignata in iis omnibus dirrigere, ita quoque manum, et calamum per veritatis semitas in tua praeconia, et gratiarum actiones precor deducito.

Selimus, perfidus Turcarum Tyrannus, Othomanicae fraudis (4), non ut Solimanus pater dissimulator, sed ex professo haeres, et alumnus faedifrago bello Venetis Cyprum pene totam (***5) Famagustam jam anno ante ademerat, rebusque secundis elatus classem innumerabilem ex Helesponto, et aliis tam Aphricae, et Asiae, quam Europae natalibus (!) (6) ad Euboeam Calendis Maii convenire jussit. Ibi dum epibatis militibus ac remigibus caeterisque necessariis reliquum classis instruitur Alli Bassa emenso bis in eundo, et redeundo Carpathio cum delectis sexaginta triremibus praesidioque cum anona Leucosiae dimisso, ad Calendas Iunii rediens, pene trecentas alias levioris pernicitatis naves praeter onerarias sub altero ductore Pertavú nominato optime munitus offendit, easque in Christianorum damna praesertim Venetorum educit. Fama apud nostros de hujusmodi classe crebrescebat, trepidabaturque passim a nostris. Turcae vero in confinibus in dies graviora minabantur. (7) Tamen Summus Pontifex Pius V. opera Marci Antonii Columnae nutantes Venetos confirmavit, et ad confoederationem suam una cum Hispaniarum Rege Philippo II contra Turcas optimis conditionibus vix post Idus Maii protraxit (8). Segniter quidem ea confoederatio compacta est cum ab anno praeterito de ea captum fuerit tractari in causa fuerant suspitiones seditionum (9). Classis Veneta erat copiosa, sed dissipata pars in Creta sub Marco Quirino, et Antonio Canali insulam custodiebat, altera major Imperatorem rerum maritimarum Sebastianum Venerium, et Augustinum Barbadicum ejus legatum secuta se receperat in Sciciliam, Messanae


SELIM info from Wikipedia:

Selim I (Ottoman Turkish: سليم اول, Turkish: Birinci Selim; 10 October 1470 – 22 September 1520), known as Selim the Grim or Selim the Resolute (Turkish: Yavuz Sultan Selim), was the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire from 1512 to 1520.His reign is notable for the enormous expansion of the Empire, particularly his conquest between 1516 and 1517 of the entire Mamluk Sultanate of Egypt, which included all of the Levant, Hejaz, Tihamah, and Egypt itself. On the eve of his death in 1520, the Ottoman Empire spanned about 576,900 sq mi (1,494,000 km2), having grown by seventy percent during Selim's reign.

Uluz-Ali info from Wikipedia:
