Page 202 - Item sacram Scripturam, juxta eum sensum quem tenuit et tenet sancta Mater Ecclesia, cujus est judicare de vero sensu, et interpretatione sacrarum Scripturarum admitto : nee eam unquam, nisi juxta unanimem consensum Patrum, accipiam et interpretabor.
Page 430 - Now, had the same young lady been engaged with a volume of the Spectator, instead of such a work, how proudly would she have produced the book, and told its name ! though the chances must be against her being occupied by any part of that voluminous publication, of which either the matter or manner would not disgust a young person of taste ; the substance of its papers so often consisting in the statement of improbable circumstances, unnatural characters, and topics of conversation, which no longer...
