Sayfa 13 - Or the unseen genius of the wood. But let my due feet never fail To walk the Studious cloister's pale, And love the high embowed roof, With antique pillars massy proof, And storied windows richly dight, Casting a dim, religious light.
Sayfa 19 - Sunday schools; and k is both novel and affecting to behold on that day the vast area of the Cathedral filled with children forming two grand divisions of boys and girls ranged opposite each other, and these again subdivided into classes, according to their age and capacities, drawn up between the pillars, while two or more instructors attend each class, and direct their questions and explanations to every little individual without distinction. A clergyman attends each class, accompanied by one or...
Sayfa 440 - Sophonisbe, première tragédie composée par un moderne; Béroald, bibliothécaire du Vatican, s'occupant à publier les Annales de Tacite, qu'on...
Sayfa 291 - Hence, is a scene of lewdness or debauchery to be introduced into a romance ? It is placed in an Italian convent. Is an assassin wanted to frighten ladies in the country or to terrify a London mob on the stage ? An Italian appears, a monk or a friar, probably with a dose of poison in one hand and a dagger in the other. Is a crime too great for utterance to be presented dimly to the imagination ? It is half disclosed in an Italian confessional. In short, is some inhuman plot to be executed, or is...
Sayfa 442 - Partout s'organisoient des universités, des collèges, des imprimeries pour toutes sortes de langues et de sciences, des bibliothèques sans...
Sayfa 9 - Basilica;, and indeed in all ancient churches, between the clergy and the people. Two circumstances are particularly observable in this church ; the one is, that there are no chapels properly so called, because the Ambrosian rite, which long retained the ancient custom of allowing one altar only, and one service in each church, not having conformed to the modern mode when the cathedral was commenced, no provision was made in the plan for private masses and oratories. This omission contributes much...
Sayfa 438 - J'étais en Italie en i755 : moins attentif à l'état actuel des villes que je parcourais qu'à leur ancienne splendeur, je remontais naturellement au siècle où elles se disputaient la gloire de fixer dans leur sein les sciences et les arts ; et je pensais que la relation d'un v.oyage entrepris dans ce pays vers le temps de Léon x, et prolongé pendant un certain nombre d'années, présenterait un des plus intéressans et des plus utiles spectacles pour l'histoire de l'esprit humain.
Sayfa 5 - Vlsconti formed matrimonial connexions with the royal dynasty of France , which on the extinction •of the former, laid claim to its territories, and made repeated attempts with various success to take possession of them. These attempts at length terminated in the decisive battle of Pavia, which broke the French power in Italy, and secured the possession of Milan to Spain, and eventually to Austria, who retained it, with a few intervals of incidental and temporary incursions, till the French revolutionary...
Sayfa 17 - ... and permanent distinction . It was his destiny to render to his people those great and splendid services which excite public applause and gratitude , and to perform at the same time those humbler duties which, though perhaps more meritorious , are more obscure , and sometimes produce more obloquy than acknowledgment.
Sayfa 46 - ... the sides of the cavern, where, just above its ordinary level, there are little fissures or holes. The water raised by the impulse which it receives from the wind, rises to these fissures, and passing through them trickles down, through the crevices that communicate with the fountain below, and gradually fills it. In stormy weather the water is impelled with greater violence, and flows in greater quantities, till it is nearly exhausted ; or at least, reduced too low to be raised again to the...
