Here, the ardent desire of the humble Kristoffel
has brought together the sweat, the sufferings, the verses,
the labors of the poets and the worries of the students,
and mixing the grace of actions with the beauty of words,
it prepared a banquet that is never depleted.
Come near, enjoy, there is no envy for you;
admire the sweet sound of the verses,
be zealous of the students’ erudition
and the skilled craftwork of the technicians.
Christ, protect those who love wisdom;
enrich them, urge them to be
sleepless guards of knowledge and eloquence,
and grant them full good health.
This is the aim of the <data>base:
to bring some benefit to the soul of its users.
