Seite 117 - ... the numbers who came from all parts of Europe to attend his lectures. He received an invitation from the emperor Maximilian to the university of Vienna, from Vaivod, king of Transylvania to Weissemburg, and from the duke of Savoy to Turin; while the pope employed the bishop of Terracino to persuade him to return to Italy, by the promise of an ample salary, with provision for his daughters, and on no other condition than that of his abstaining from inculcating his religious opinions.
