цитаты ХIII века про часы (Данте и Чосер), для эпиграфа

"And as wheels in the movements of a clock turn in such a way that, to an observer, the innermost seems standing still, the outermost to fly" (Dante, Commedia, Paradiso, Canto XXIV, lines 13-15; c. 1315-1321 CE)

139 Then, like a clock that calls us at the hour
140 when the bride of God gets up to sing
141 matins to her bridegroom, that he should love her still,
142 when a cog pulls one wheel and drives another,
143 chiming its ting-ting with notes so sweet
144 that the willing spirit swells with love,
145 thus I saw that glorious wheel in motion,
146 matching voice to voice in harmony
147 and with sweetness that cannot be known
148 except where joy becomes eternal.
(Dante, Commedia, Paradiso, Canto X, lines 139-148; c. 1315-1321 CE)

Well sikerer* was his crowing in his lodge
Than is a clock of any abbey orloge**.
(Chaucert, Canterbury Tales, The Nun's Priest's Tale, c 1387-1400)

* sikerer = more certain
**orloge = horologe, clock
