Passus - examples of usage

  1. The author begins by putting them in with some regularity at the beginnings of the passus into which he divides his narrative, but, as the story progresses, he ceases to do so, perhaps forgets his first purpose. - "Early Theories of Translation", Flora Ross Amos.
  2. As was said before, the writer soon forgets to insert it at the beginning of the new passus; there are plenty of marvels without any citation of authority to add to their credibility; and though the proper name carries its reference to the Latin, it is usually strangely distorted from its original form. - "Early Theories of Translation", Flora Ross Amos.
  3. Passus sub Pontio Pilato. - "By What Authority?", Robert Hugh Benson.
