עמוד 169 - On the whole the church gained little by the compromise. It might check, but did not abolish, the principal abuse. If Henry surrendered an unnecessary ceremony, he still retained the substance. The right which he assumed of nominating bishops and abbots was left unimpaired...
עמוד 99 - And there were with him all the rich men over all England ; archbishops and diocesan bishops, abbots and earls, thanes and knights.

עמוד 294 - From the commencement of christianity its professors had been exhorted to withdraw their differences from the cognizance of profane tribunals, and to submit them to the paternal authority of their bishops *, who, by the nature of their office, were bound to heal the wounds of dissension, and by the sacredness of their character were removed beyond the suspicion of partiality or prejudice.
עמוד 278 - Hence the characteristic feature of his policy was delay: a hasty decision could not be recalled : but he persuaded himself that procrastination would allow him to improve every advantage which accident might offer. In his own dominions he wished, says a contemporary, to concentrate all power within his own person. He was jealous of every species of authority which did not emanate from himself, and which was not subservient to his will. His pride delighted in confounding the most haughty of his nobles,...
עמוד 212 - Bloet, bishop of Lincoln, who had for many years been one of his principal justiciaries, was told that the king had spoken of him in terms of the highest commendation : " Then," he replied, " I am undone : for I never knew him praise *' a man whom he did not intend to ruin.
