Headword: Χαλδαϊκοῖς ἐπιτηδεύμασι
Adler number: chi,12
Translated headword: Chaldean rituals
Vetting Status: high
As Proclus[1] was puzzled by Isidore's imitations of birds and their voices and sounds sometimes during the Chaldean rituals, he himself demonstrated the way of imitation of the fluttering of other [birds including] sparrows and domestic fowl, how they make a noise with their wings as they stir themselves up to take flight.
Greek Original:
Χαλδαϊκοῖς ἐπιτηδεύμασι: διαπορουμένῳ γοῦν τῷ Πρόκλῳ περὶ τῶν Ἰσιδώρου μιμήσεων τῶν ὀρνέων καὶ τῶν φωνῶν τῶν ἀπηχημάτων ἐνίας ἐν τοῖς Χαλδαϊκοῖς ἐπιτηδεύμασιν, αὐτὸς ὑπεδείκνυε τὴν ὁδὸν τῆς μιμήσεως ἄλλων τε καὶ στρουθῶν τῶν μικρῶν τούτων καὶ κατοικιδίων τῆς πτήσεως, οἷα ψοφοῦσι ταῖς πτέρυξιν ἐγειρόμενα πρὸς τὸ πετᾶσθαι.
