The Age Of Erasmus        Lectures Delivered In The Universities Of Oxford And London


The Importance Of Biography For The Study Of History Can Hardly Be
Overrated. In A Sense It Is True That History Should Be Like The Law
And 'Care Not About Very Small Things'; Concerning Itself Not So Much
With Individual Personality As With Fundamental Causes Affecting The
Rise And Fall Of Nations Or The Development Of Mental Outlook From One
Age To Another. But Even If This Be Conceded, We Still Must Not Forget
That The Course Of History Is Worked Out By Individuals, Who, In Spite
Of The Accidental Condensation That The Needs Of Human Life Thrust
Upon Them, Are Isolated At The Last And Alone--For No Man May Deliver
His Brother. In Consequence, It Is Only In Periods When The Stream Of
Personal Record Flows Wide And Deep That History Begins To Live, And
That We Have A Chance To View It Through The Eyes Of The Actors
Instead Of Projecting Upon It Our Own Fancies And Conceptions.
