A History of the Papacy from the Great Schism to the Sack of Rome Part Three
1903. Volume Three of Six. Creighton writes in the Preface: My aim in this book is to bring together materials for a judgment of the change which came over Europe in the sixteenth century, to which the name of The Reformation is loosely given. I have attempted to do this from a strictly historical point of view, -by which I mean that I have contented myself with watching events and noting the gradual development of affairs. I have taken the history of the Papacy as the central point for my investigation, because it gives the largest opportunity for a survey of European affairs as a whole. Contents: Book III. The Council of Basel (con't): The German Declaration of Neutrality. Election of Felix V; Eugenius IV and Felix V. Book IV. The Papal Restoration: Aeneas Sylvius Piccolomini and the Restoration of the Obedience of Germany; Nicolas V and the Affairs of Germany; Nicolas V. and the Fall of Constantinople; Nicolas V and the Revival of Learning; Calixtus III; Pius II and the Congress of Mantua; Pius II and the Affairs of Naples and Germany; Pius II's Relations to France and Bohemia; and Crusade and Death of Pius II.
