Side 97 - I see before me the gladiator lie : He leans upon his hand ; his manly brow Consents to death, but conquers agony, And his drooped head sinks gradually low ; And through his side the last drops, ebbing slow From the red gash, fall heavy, one by one, Like the first of a thunder-shower ; and now The arena swims around him ; he is gone, Ere ceased the inhuman shout which hailed the wretch who won.
Side 97 - ... wretch who won. He heard it, but he heeded not — his eyes Were with his heart, and that was far away : He recked not of the life he lost nor prize, But where his rude hut by the Danube lay, There were his young barbarians all at play, There was their Dacian mother — he, their sire, Butchered to make a Roman holiday — All this rushed with his blood — Shall he expire And unavenged ? — Arise ! ye Goths, and glut your ire...
Side 97 - Like the first of a thunder-shower ; and now The arena swims around him ; he is gone, Ere ceased the inhuman shout which hail'd the wretch who won He heard it, but he heeded not ; his eyes Were with his heart, and that was far away...
Side 24 - ... of the kingdom, and wrote it in a book, and laid it up before the LORD. And Samuel sent all the people away, every man to his house.
Side 78 - Cato, an eminent physician of Salerno, and others mention it in the same century. Almost two hundred years before that epoch historians take notice that King Charles I. of Anjou, coming to Naples, the archbishop brought out the head and blood of this martyr. The continuator of the Chronicle of Maraldus says the same was done upon the arrival of King Roger, who venerated these relics in 1140. Falco of Benevento relates the same thing. From several circumstances this miracle is traced much higher ;...
Side 40 - Man ! Thou pendulum betwixt a smile and tear, Ages and realms are crowded in this span, This mountain, whose obliterated plan The pyramid of empires pinnacled, Of Glory's gewgaws shining in the van Till the sun's rays with added flame were fill'd!
Side 77 - The standing miracle, as it is called by Baronius, of the blood of St. Januarius, liquefying and boiling up at the approach of the martyr's head, is likewise very famous. In a rich chapel called the treasury, in the great church at Naples, are preserved the blood in two very old glass vials, and the head of St. Januarius. The blood is congealed, and of a dark colour ; but when brought in sight of the head, though at a considerable distance, it melts, bubbles...
Side 77 - ... most attentively examined all the circumstances. Certain Jesuits sent by F. Bollandus to Naples were allowed by the archbishop, cardinal Philamurini, to see this prodigy ; the minute description of the manner in which it is performed, is related by them in the life of F. Bollandus. It happens equally in all seasons of the year, and in variety of circumstances. The usual times when it is performed, are the feast of St. Januarius, the...
Side 49 - ... this pediment, and the rest of the entablature at each end of it, surmounted by a high wall, ornamented with pilasters and square windows, and supporting a stone balustrade, above the two ends of which arise two clocks, with pink-coloured faces, which themselves support a tiara and two keys; three domes, partly concealed by this wall and balustrade, even from the distant .point from...
Side 151 - Not leave to commit sin, or a pardon for sins to come, as some slander the church ; but only a releasing of temporal punishment due to such sins as are already forgiven us, by the sacrament of penance.
