Leonhartus Albertus, a poet of the age of Rudolph II, describes in a poem addressed to Heinrich Bohrmann his seal displaying an hourglass, a skull and (cross-?)bones as a sign of human ephemerality. Albertus’ explanation of the three elements is traditional. It is impossible to determine whether Heinrich Bohrmann, whose origin is paraphrased by Dalensis Belga, is identical to Henricus Borman Kessel Dalensis Iuliacus, whom we find in the register of the Faculty of Law in Padua on 9 July 1603. Albertus’ motto Lucem amo, which refers to Jesus Christ and was versified two times by the poet, is in contrast to the seal. The Latin text of all three poems is edited, accompanied by a German translation and commentary.
