Example text

By 1530 Budé persuaded François I to found his Lecteurs royaux (later the Collège de France) in Latin, Greek, Hebrew, and mathematics, incurring the anger of the Sorbonne, threatened in their long hegemony over the University of Paris. Similar trilingual colleges were founded elsewhere at about the same time, such as Corpus Christi College at Oxford, and Busleiden's Page 11 college at Louvain. By 1600 such schools flourished nearly everywhere, realizing through a humanist curriculum centered on grammar, rhetoric, and logic a new civilization derived from deep study of the cultural past.

Semina in corporibus humanis divina dispersa sunt, quae si bonus cultor excipit, simlia origini prodeunt et paria iis, ex quibus orta sunt, surgunt; si malus, non aliter quam humus sterilis ac palustris necat ac deinde creat purgamenta pro frugibus. The gods are not disdainful or envious; they open the door to you; they lend a hand as you climb. Do you marvel that man goes to the gods? God comes to men; nay, he comes nearer,he comes into men. No mind that has not God, is good. Divine seeds are scattered throughout our mortal bodies; if a good husbandman receives them, they spring up in the likeness of their source and of a parity with those from which they came.

To illustrate his sense of sharp breaks in history (as we can best recover them from our own limited and necessarily prejudiced viewpoints) and his sense of the culture in flux, he cites one of my examples here, Cervantes' Don Quijote.
