Seite 216 - On the morrow of Trinity-day, the king of England espoused her in the parish church near to which he was lodged ; great pomp and magnificence were displayed by him and his princes, as if he were at that moment king of all the world.
Seite 235 - When they were asked for what reason they acted so wickedly ; they replied, they knew not, but they did so because they saw others do it ; and they thought that by this means they should destroy all the nobles and gentlemen in the world.
Seite 81 - Jumieges, and had not yet begun to develope into the more florid style of Bayeux and Saint Gabriel, the church of William, vast in scale, bold and simple in its design, disdaining ornament, but never sinking into rudeness, is indeed a church worthy of its founder. The minster of Matilda, far richer, even in its earliest parts, smaller in size, more delicate in workmanship, has nothing of that simplicity and grandeur of proportion which marks the work of her husband.

They overlook an immense distance in those flat, peat-digging, black and green regions, with...
Seite 18 - Rheims, and in loveliness of figure-sculpture to Bourges.

And yet, in all, and more than these, ways, outshone...
Seite 223 - Buch, posted themselves in front of this peasantry, who were badly armed. When these banditti perceived such a troop of gentlemen, so well equipped, sally forth to guard the market-place, the foremost of them began to fall back. The gentlemen then followed them, using their lances and swords. When they felt the weight of their blows, they, through fear, turned about so fast, they fell one over the other. All manner of...
