Seite 98 - Dal mezzo in qua ci venian verso '1 volto, Di là con noi, ma con passi maggiori : Come i Roman, per l' esercito molto; L' anno del giubbileo, su per lo ponte, Hanno a passar la gente modo tolto : Che dall' un lato tutti hanno la fronte Verso '1 castello, e vanno a santo Pietro : Dall' altra sponda vanno verso '1 monte.
Seite 330 - And the blame is put upon me because, looking at those interests as if they were mine, I hasten to your Holiness as to a father whom I love and respect, and as a good son remind him of the duties of the Holy See! By God's mercy, where have you found in the whole course of my life reasons for thinking of me as you tell me men think of me, and by what right do you tell it me? God and the whole world know my love for the Holy See, and nothing will ever make me deviate from it, not even your Holiness...
Seite 330 - Nothing has surprised me more than to see your Holiness, after an act inspired by God (the bull against Henry of Navarre) leaving time to the heretics to take root in France, without even ordering that the Catholic partisans of 'the Bearnais' should separate from his cause. The church is on the eve of losing one of its members; Christendom is on the point of being set on fire by the united heretics; Italy runs the greatest danger, and in the presence of the enemy we look on and we...
Seite 137 - Rome,' writes Padre Don Angelo Grillo, ' after an absence of ten years, and do not recognise it, so new does all appear to me to be : monuments, streets, piazzas, fountains, aqueducts, obelisks, and other wonders, all the work of Sixtus V. If I were a poet I would say that, to the imperious sound of the trumpet of that...
Seite 124 - When it had been proposed to raise the obelisk of Nero in the centre of the piazza of St. Peter, ' Michael Angelo and San Gallo, who were the first architects of the day, were unanimous in declaring the undertaking to be impracticable. Their opinion being law,' the idea was given up. Fontana afterwards designed a plan which was accepted ; but, as the mason was still young, two ' architects of eminence ' were ordered by the Commission to carry out the work. Fontana then, appealing to the Pope, declared...
Seite 138 - ... after an absence of ten years, and do not recognise it, so new does all appear to me to be : monuments, streets, piazzas, fountains, aqueducts, obelisks, and other wonders, all the work of Sixtus V. If I were a poet I would say that, to the imperious sound of the trumpet of that great-hearted Pope, the wakened limbs of that half-buried and gigantic body which spreads over the Latin Campagna have replied — that, thanks to the power of that fervent and exuberant spirit, a new Rome has risen from...
Seite 360 - ... of the reign of this Pope ; that is, upon his intervention in French affairs. In presence of the events of which France was the theatre, he aimed at two things : the preservation of the Catholic religion, which was seriously compromised, and the maintenance of France in the rank of the first Powers of Europe. He was convinced that if the new creed should be enthroned in France it was all over for some time, nay, perhaps for generations, with the Catholic religion in Europe. Its defenders would...
Seite 101 - Con il discorso funerale che fu fatto nelle essequie di papa Paulo III. Con le figure che fanno bisogno nella lucina, et alii reverendissimi nel conclave.
Seite 198 - I have done, which was not only lawful but pious, since it had for its object to insure the peace of the public by the death of a private individual.
Seite 98 - Strangers are surprised to find so few ladies of rank ; for they seldom go out, and never except in a carriage. The coaches are filled with ecclesiastics, with prelates, 1 Come i Roman, per 1' esercito molto, I ," anno del Giubbileo, su per lo ponte Hanno a passar la gente modo tolto ; Che dall...
