German term or phrase: leg.
From a scholarly work on early modern theology/philosophy. I'm assuming that "leg." is a Latin abbreviation for something, but I can't figure out what. It appears in a footnote of the original Latin quote cited in the text.

Super nos per quatuor aetates descendens Christi quaternio, (quod vi divinitatis in eo quintae subsistit immortale, ita ut Christus nos [so im Druck; *leg.*: „non“] nisi violenta morte moriebatur) nos restituit.

Here's the author's German translation of the sentence if that helps:

Wie uns Christus nur durch die unsterbliche Form (Mens) vom Tode errettete, so ist die Quaternität Christi, die in der göttlichen Kraft der fünften Unsterblichkeit steht, durch vier Sphären herabgestiegen auf uns und hat uns wiederhergestellt.
