Page 80 - Adeliza, decores Ipsa referre parans Musa stupore riget: Quid diadema tibi pulcherrima ? Quid tibi gemma ? Pallet gemma tibi, nec diadema nitet. Deme tibi cultus, cultum natura ministrat.
Page 88 - Numina flent numen nunc dépérisse4 suum. Mercurius minor eloquio, vi mentis Apollo, Jupiter imperio, Marsque vigore gemunt ; Janus cautela minor, Alcides probitate Conflictu Pallas, arte Minerva gemunt. Angliaque cujus,6 quse sceptro numinis hujus Ardua splenduerat, jam tenebrosa ruit. Usée cum rege suo, Normannia cum duce marcet ; Nutrit6 hsec puerum, perdidit illa virum.
Page 55 - Obiit Brando Abbas Burgi, patruus dicti Herewardi le Wake, cui ex Regis collatione successit Turoldus." He then goes on to tell the story of Turold being taken by Hereward and ransoming himself. Its appearance at this point shows pretty plainly that it is simply another form of the sacking of Peterborough in 1070. Lastly, under 1071 we read, " Herewardus le Wake etiam intra paludes Elienses, cum multis...
Page 131 - ... comminuendo unam rupem pro vinea amplianda in medio lapidis invenit concavitatem unam, nullam penitus divisionem habentem neque scissuram, et in concavitate üla reperit unum librum quasi folia lignea habentem.
Page 17 - Christi fide patriseque defensione contra barbaros processerunt." The memory of the early defenders of Christendom has been often greatly misrepresented by infidel writers, who invariably take part against the Christians. It is to be borne in mind, therefore, that when Charlemagne first attacked the Saxon pagans...

Page 55 - Wake, given to Hereward by modern writers, comes from the Chronicle of John of Peterborough, a writer of uncertain date and personality. He has several entries about Hereward, which are to the same effect as the story in the Gesta. Under 1068 we read, "Herewardus de partibus transmarinis rediens in Angliam ad hsereditatem suam, et reperiens Regem Normannis earn contulisse, occisis occupantibus, ccepit contra Kegem dimicare." Under the next year we read, " Obiit Brando abbas Burgi, patruus dicti Herewardi...

Page 131 - Hic papa cum ab imperatore qui tune ex magna parte patrimonium ecclesie occupaverat in urbe obsideretur. videns quasi omnes Romanos per pecuniam corruptos. ipse accipiens capita apostolorum Petri scilicet et Pauli. et processionem a Laterano usque ad sanctum Petrum faciens animos Romanorum sic revocavit. ut pene omnes contra imperatorem cruce signarentur. quod imperator qui iam urbcm intrare sperabat audiens multum timuit et ab urbe longius recessit.
