“Quem quaeritis in sepulchro, o christicolae?”
“Iesum Nazarenum crucifixum, o caelicolae.”
“non est hic: surrexit sicut praedixerat.
ite, nuntiate quia surrexit de sepulchro.”
(Corpus Troporum 3.2)

Question [by the Angels]: “Whom do ye seek in the sepulchre, O followers of Christ?”
Answer [by the Marys]: “Jesus of Nazareth, the Crucified, O heavenly ones.”
The Angels: “He is not here; he is risen, just as he foretold. Go, announce that he is risen from the sepulchre.”
(tr. John Gassner)
