Elene, lines 894-997

The devil rises up from hell an begins to speak.  He is angry at Judas for robbing him or his riches (the cross), and he complains about all the things that Jesus has done to harm him.  He says that he will stir up another king against Judas so that the Judas is persecuted.

But Judas replies, saying that God will punish the devil.

Elene hears, and is pleased, thanking God both for the finding of the Cross and for Judas’ conversion.  She orders her troop to send messengers ahead to tell Constantine in Rome of the success of her mission.  Constantine is very happy.
