I caused them to be placed under guard, and all the soldiers of the Inquisition to be secured as prisoners. We then proceeded to examine all the rooms of the stately edifice.
Seite 165 - It was like a resurrection ! About a hundred who had been buried for many years were now restored to life.

The scene was such as no tongue can describe.
Seite 43 - I will do what you ask willingly, and shortly, although I might refer you to George Hermann, who knows her well. Her father was Fulvio Morata, a native of Mantua, a man famous for learning and probity, with whom I was very intimate. I have heard her at court declaiming in Latin, speaking Greek, and answering questions, as well as any of the females among the ancients could have done. Do not feel a doubt respecting the Sapphic ode, written in Greek, in which she celebrates the praises of the Most...
