Стр. 324 - This beautiful production is every way worthy of Its author's reputation in the very first rank of contemporary writers.*
Стр. 164 - The task was difficult, to an lie: but the spirit and determination of the king did not quail before the gigantic undertaking. The authority of the Church was almost unlimited; her riches were enormous, and her dependants innumerable. The legate of the Pope had, in fact, more power than the king; and the sagacity of Henry soon showed him that openly to defy a body which could answer that defiance by an appeal to Rome to hurl her thunders at his head, was not the way to establish his authority. So...

Стр. 165 - ... consent to be governed, he felt that he was not secure in his own kingdom. The abuses of the power of the Church had risen to an intolerable height; the rapacity of the priests, only equalled by their tyranny, was incredible; and the darkness of the age encouraged the superstition of the masses, aud daily added to the ecclesiastical despotism. The people were kept in profound ignorance ; the nobles were too much addicted to pleasure and to war to have leisure to learn ; therefore, the only cultivation...
Стр. 18 - His nose was high and straight, and his mouth and chin well cat and defined, and expressive of great firmness. The foreign appearance of father Thomas might, in some degree, be accounted for by the fact of his mother having been born in the east, but he himself was a native of England. Much care was already written upon that brow, although the prior was still a young man ; but ambition is a wearing passion, and no gown of serge or shirt of hair ever covered a breast more madly heaving with ambitious...
Стр. 18 - ... himself was a native of England. Much care was already written upon that brow, although the prior was still a young man ; but ambition is a wearing passion, and no gown of serge or shirt of hair ever covered a breast more madly heaving with ambitious hope than did that which enveloped the tall and supple form of the Prior of Severnstoke. None could behold in him the mere ordinary mortal, nor could his holy garb thoroughly endue him with the meek and lowly air befitted to his calling. " There...

None could behold in him the mere ordinary mortal, nor could his holy garb thoroughly endue him with the meek and lowly air befitted to his calling. " There was in him more of the soldier than of the priest, more of the statesman than the book-worm ; and perhaps yet more than either, of the gay and chivalrous character...
Стр. 59 - Sproat, proclaimed with his solemn 0 yes ! that a court is opened for the administration of even-handed justice, to the poor as well as to the rich, to the guilty and the innocent, without respect of persons, none to be punished without a trial by their peers, and then in pursuance of law...
Стр. 159 - I am not the bank," she said to herself, with a return of her old levity. "It is not me he means to give up ; he must never, never give up me." And then she kissed the letter again. She had never done such a thing all her life ; but she did it now without stopping to think, and she read over...
Стр. 165 - ... innumerable. The legate of the Pope had, in fact, more power than the king; and the sagacity of Henry soon showed him that openly to defy a body which could answer that defiance by an appeal to Rome to hurl her thunders at his head, was not the way to establish his authority. So long as this power of appeal existed, and the clergy had their separate laws, by which alone they would consent to be governed, he felt that he was not secure in his own kingdom. The abuses of the power of the Church...
