Of rising or standing of haire. Chap. 43.
RIsing or standing of haire is a cer∣teine shrewde disposition,* that com∣meth in the bodye of feauerish matter,* and commeth before the ares, and shew∣eth of the comming thereof. And it com∣meth of colde smoake, that is resolued, & shed of colde flumatike matter or me∣lancholik. Page 103 And this smok al to sheddeth it selfe sodeinlye into the members of the bodie, and toucheth the sinewes and the brawns, and maketh with his cold∣nesse, that the skin shrinketh together. and so straining the mores and the roots of the haires, closeth and stoppeth the pores. And this cold smoake causeth the haire to arise and stande vp rough and straight. Therefore Isidore saith, That the rising & standing of the haire with gastlye affraye, is called Horripilatio. And commeth when the haire of the head ariseth and standeth vp for some feare and gastfulnesse. For sodein dread gathereth heat to the inner partes. And therefore the vtter partes béeing with∣out heat runneth & reueleth togethers. And so in the vtter partes of the skinne vnwilfullye the haire riseth and stan∣deth. The same cause and reason is in rising and standing of haire and qua∣king and cold grilling and shiuering in them that haue the Feauers, as Con∣stantine saith.
