De Sapore. cap. 4.

SAuour is perceiued and knowen by taste, for as coulour is knowen by sight, so sauour is knowen by taste: and is the propertie of a thing, and pro∣fereth it selfe to the name of the soule, by the way of taste, for it is a propertie that is perceiued onely by the tast. This I toll at the beginning, ye Philosophers deeme otherwise of the principles of sa∣uours, then Phisitions doe: but of that strife I force not at this time: for wee search onely Diuersitie, Cause & Wor∣king of sauour, as it belongeth to Holy Writ to seeke some dark meaning of pro∣perties of sauours, and therefore of the other, we force not at this time.
