Strona 797 - As to the internal probability of the work being ^Elfred's, we know pretty well what his attainments were, what he wrote and what he translated. There is no evidence that he ever translated any fables, and there is nothing to show that he had any knowledge of Greek. In fact the knowledge of Greek, if we are to suppose that it is implied, is about an equal difficulty in either case. There is also the difficulty, a lesser difficulty certainly, which is pressed by M.
Strona 510 - Never indeed was any man more contented with doing his duty in that state of life to which it had pleased God to call him.
Strona 314 - The alms of the settlement, in this dreadful exigency, were certainly .liberal ; and all was done by charity that private charity could do ; but it was a people in beggary ; it was a nation which stretched out its hands for food.
Strona 690 - So very narrowly he caused it to be " traced out, that there was not a single hide, nor one virgate of land, nor even, " it is shame to tell. though it seemed to him no shame to do, an ox, nor a cow, " nor a swine was left, that was not set down.
Strona 391 - God, craving 1 his mildness, 5 for that they could get no mildness from men. What may we say, but that they shot sorely, and that others brake down the doors there, and went in, and slew some of the monks to death, and many wounded therein, so that the blood came from the altar upon the grees and from the grees upon the floor.

The harrying of Northumberland now rose up before his eyes in all its blackness. The dying man...
Strona 690 - Eke he let write how mickle of land his archbishops had, and his bishops, and his abbots and his earls, and what or how mickle ilk man had that landholder was in England in land and in cattle, and how mickle fee it was worth. So very narrowly he let...
Strona 291 - Men, women, and children died of hunger; they laid them down and died in the roads and in the fields, and there was no man to bury them.
Strona 707 - Rufus straightway set forth for Witsand, and there heard of his father's death. Meanwhile Henry, too, left his father's bedside to take for himself the money that was left to him, to see that nothing was lacking in its weight, to call together his comrades on whom he could trust, and to take measures for stowing the treasure in a place of safety.
Strona 815 - Lisieux, and perhaps of this Ralph. The account of this trial seems quite clear, but it is followed in Eadmer (Hist. Nov. 9) by the account of another trial, in which Odo appears as the plaintiff and Lanfranc as the defendant; "Alio tempore idem Odo, permittente rege, placitum instituit contra ssepefatam ecclesiam et tutorem ejus patrem Lanfrancum, et illuc omnes quos peritiores legum et usuum Anglici regni noverat gnarus adduxit.
