The Formation Of Christendom
IT is somewhat paradoxical, but strictly true, to say that the greatest and most important revolution which ever took place upon earth is that to which least attention has hitherto been paid, and concerning which least is known—the substitution of `Christendom' for the heathen world.
Champagny's Roman Empire
I owe my readers an apology for not having earlier invited their attention to the historical works of the Count de Champagny.
Champagny's Caesars Of The Third Century
IN the three volumes before me M. de Champagny completes a great work, undertaken many years ago; and to the earlier part of which I have already called the attention of my readers. It is to any man no small blessing to have been led to select as his own some undertaking the achievement of which is, in itself, important, and for which he is adapted by his position, talents, and attainments.
The Gallican Assembly Of 1682
WHO can despair of the vitality of truth, when the real history of the struggle between the Holy See and Gallicanism, under Lewis XIV., after lying buried for two centuries, under a vast mountain of falsehood, has at last come to light ?
The Church And Napoleon I
THE three volumes before me are a reprint of the part which has already appeared of a series of articles in the ` Revue des deux Mondes.'
Pius VII And Napoleon I
THE history of the relations between Pius VII. and Napoleon I. naturally divides itself into two periods. The first embraces the years in which Pius was a Sovereign in possession of his dominions, and communicated with Napoleon as one monarch with another.
Pius VII At Savona And Fontainebleau
IN two former essays on the history of Pius VII. and Napoleon I, I have traced the very able narrative of M. D'Haussonville from the Conclave in which the Pope was elected, in the year 1800, down to the beginning of 1811.
