Sayfa 236 - Pompo- scepticism on the question of the immortality of the soul. Yet while the Council was still sitting, the chief of the philosophic teachers of Italy did not hesitate to publish a book which put forward all the arguments against this article of the Christian faith. While Francis I. and Leo X. were conferring in Bologna, Pietro Pomponazzi of Mantua was lecturing in the city and was busy on his treatise ' On the Immortality of the Soul '. He was an ardent Aristotelian, a fervent follower of Alexander...
Sayfa 44 - The exceptional infamy that attaches to Alexander VI. is largely due to the fact that he did not add hypocrisy to his other vices. But however much his own times may have forgotten that there was any meaning in the position of Head of the Christian Church, it is impossible for after times to adopt the same forgetfulness.
Sayfa 193 - So wrote Ficino, and came forward with his offering of a misty effort to set forth the image of Plato as closely resembling the truth of Christ ; but his philosophic miracle did not work conviction, his system did not reduce all gainsayers to silence. The question of the immortality of the soul continued to be openly disputed in the schools of Italy, and few were shocked by the discussion.

Sayfa 169 - ... entered upon the task as he would have entered upon a campaign, and achieved results far beyond the ambition of his most refined and accomplished predecessors. His treatment of individual artists was often harsh and niggardly, but of his dealings with art as a whole Bishop Creighton rightly declares : " he did not merely employ great artists, he impressed them with a sense of his own greatness, and called out all that was strongest and noblest in their 244 Venetian encroachments on the Papal...
Sayfa 175 - Seated in an arm-chair, with head bent downwards, the Pope is in deep thought. His furrowed brow and his deep-sunk eyes tell of energy and decision. The downdrawn corners of his mouth betoken constant dealings with the world. Raffaelle has caught the momentary repose of a restless and passionate spirit...
Sayfa 130 - Alidosi's death was not an unmixed loss. Julius II. listened, and with the astounding capacity which he possessed for quick change of mood, soon began to rail at Alidosi as a villain. The vigour of Julius II. rested on an acceptance of what the day might bring forth, and he wasted none of his energy on useless regrets.2 It is hard to account for the infatuation of Julius II. towards Cardinal Alidosi, and we cannot wonder that contemporary scandal attributed it to the vilest...
Sayfa 224 - Whilst we looked for the crown imperial,' wrote Pace, ' we might lose the crown of England, which is this day more esteemed than the Emperor's crown and all his Empire.
