    The scandal was enormous, a strict inquiry was made, justice was done as far as possible, and an official account of the affair was published in a 'Green Book'; Ave Roma immortalis book the amount of the loss was unknown, it may have been incalculable, and it was undeniably great. Then against wealth arose the last and greatest power of Rome, her terrible armies that set up whom they would, to have their will of Senate and fathers and people. And there, with many other citizens, Stephen Porcari spoke to the Council, saying some things useful to the Republic; and he declared that Rome should govern itself and pay a feudal tribute to the Pope, as many others of the Papal States did. Nicholas Rienzi wanders amid the deserted places, deciphers the broken inscriptions, gathers a little crowd of plebeians about him and tells them of ancient Rome, and of the rights of the people in old times. What will be called hereafter the madness of the Italian people took possession of them on the day when Rome was theirs to do with as they pleased.

    One asks whence came the idea of unity which has [Pg 54] had such power to move these Italians, in modern times. Still it came not. Then the Emperor was filled with pity, and answered that the saint might have the antipope alive, if he himself would then remain in Rome and direct Ave Roma immortalis book monastery of Saint Anastasia of the Greeks. It is strange, unless it be an accident, that the great opponents, the Dominicans and the Jesuits, should have established themselves on opposite sides of the same [Pg 61] street, and it is characteristic that the latter should have occupied more land and built more showy buildings than the former, extending their possessions in more than one direction and in a tentative way, while the rigid Dominicans remained rooted to the spot they had chosen, throughout many centuries. The Buddhist monks of the far East believe today that a man's individual self is often beset, possessed and dominated by all kinds of fragmentary personalities that altogether hide his real nature, which may in reality be better or worse than they are.

    Down the steep mountain they go, down over the rich, rolling land, down through the deep forests, unhewn of man, down at last to the river, Ave Roma immortalis book seven low hills rise out of the wide plain. To the Region of Saint Eustace belongs the history of Crescenzio, consul, tribune and despot of Rome. The theatre was the same. Brutus had seen his own sons' heads fall at his own word; should Caius Pontius, the Samnite, be spared, because he was the bravest of the brave? Inthe American Macmillan firm began a deluxe uniform edition of his novels, as reprintings required.

A vast concourse of people followed him, for the news had spread from mouth to Ave Roma immortalis book, and there were few in Rome who had not heard his voice and longed for the 'Good Estate' which he so well described.

The moment has come. It was the prayer of Ignatius Loyola that his order should be persecuted, and his desire has been most literally fulfilled, for the Jesuits have suffered almost uninterrupted persecution, not at the hands of Protestants only, but of the Roman Catholic Church itself in successive ages.

Chaos next. Rienzi assumed the title of Tribune with the authority of Dictator, and with ten thousand swords at his back exacted a humiliating oath of allegiance from the representatives of the great houses.

He leads his small band swiftly down from the [Pg 2] heights, and they drive a flock and a little herd before them, while each man carries his few belongings as best he can, and there are few women in the company.

The palace used to face the Ghetto, but that is gone, swept away to the very last stone by the municipality in a fine hygienic frenzy, though, in truth, neither plague nor cholera had ever taken hold there in the pestilences of old days, when the Christian city was choked with the dead it could not bury.

They bore torches and weapons, and beams for battering down the doors, and they reached the place, a raging horde of madmen. Of all great conquerors he was the least cruel, for he never sacrificed human life without [Pg 32] the direct intention of benefiting mankind by an increased social stability.

Their financial ruin had its origin at that moment, when they became masters of the legendary Mistress of the world. Then some one wrote out an account of the Carafa's misdeeds and laid it in the Pope's own Breviary.

This was the man to whom Queen Elizabeth sent an embassy, in the hope of obtaining the Papal sanction for her succession to the throne. The walls of Aurelian, broken and war-worn and full of half-repaired breaches, enclose a desert, a world too wide for its inhabitants, a vast straggling heterogeneous ma.

Take Petronius Arbiter's 'novel' next, the Satyricon, if you be not over-delicate in taste, and glance at the daily journal of a dissolute wretch wandering from one scene of incredible vice to another.

The true poet gives us the real man, and after all, men are more important than stones.
