A History of the Papacy from the Great Schism to the Sack of Rome Part Five
1903. Volume Five 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 V. (con't) The Italian Princes: Alexander VI and Cesare Borgia; Death of Alexander VI; The Fall of Cesare Borgia-Pius III-Julius II; First Plans of Julius II; The League of Cambral; The Wars of Julius II; The Holy League; Rome Under Julius II; Beginnings of Leo X; Francis I in Italy; and Close of the Lateran Council.
