Joseph Francois Michaud : Histoire des croisades

'[Tuesday] March 13th. [...] In the Evening read Das Lied von der Glocke [Schiller] and begin the History of the Crusades by Michaud.'

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: Claire Clairmont      Print: Book


Joseph-Francois Michaud : Histoire des Croisades

'I am reading Michaud's Histoire des Croisades, well written and entertaining; and I have just finished Monti's fine Tragedy of Caius Gracchus. I like it much better than his Aristodemus - and I suspect I shall also prefer it to his Galeotto Manfredi, tho' the opening scene of this last is admirable. The story however is an odious one, and all the worse for being true'.

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: Sarah Harriet Burney      Print: Book


Michaud : article on Pelagius

[Following notes on life and thought of Pelagius] 'From a good article in the Biographie Universelle.'
