Then did Car of Cambridge, and Ascham, with their lectures and writings, almost deify Cicero and Demosthenes, and allure all...
Seite 296 - DO sooner had he freed his followers from the chains of papal domination, than he forged others, in many respects equally intolerable ; and it was the employment of his latter years, to counteract the beneficial effects produced by his former labours. The great example of freedom...
Seite 282 - Since your majesty, and the sovereigns now present, require a simple answer, I shall reply thus, without evasion, and without vehemence. Unless I be convinced, by the testimony of Scripture, or by evident reason, (for I cannot rely on the authority of the pope and councils alone, since it appears that they have frequently erred, and contradicted each other,) and unless my conscience be subdued by the word of God, I neither can nor will retract anything ; seeing that to act against my own conscience...
