not to know how to keep and break a law at the same time. So they inflicted _each species_ of torture once. Whosoever cannot see that this is torturing a man only once, need but consult any seminarian fresh from his Roman text-books. Or they inflicted torture once for each distinct complaint."

  1. All the books of the famous Abelard were burnt by order of Pope
    Innocent II.; but it was his _Treatise on the Trinity_, condemned
    by the Council of Soissons about 1121, and by the Council of Sens
    in 1140, which chiefly led St. Bernard to his cruel persecution
    of this famous man. That great saint, using the habitual language
    of ecclesiastical charity, called Abelard an infernal dragon and
    the precursor of Antichrist. Among his heresies Abelard seems to
    have held the opinion that the devil has no power over man; but
    at all events the Church had in those days, as Abelard learnt to
    his cost, though, considering that his disciple Arnauld of
    Brescia was destined to be burnt alive at Rome in 1155, Abelard
    might have deemed himself fortunate in only incurring
    imprisonment, and not sharing the fate of his works as well as
    that of his illustrious follower.

    The latter calamity befell John Huss, who, having been led before
    the bishop's palace to see his own condemned works burnt, was
    then led on to be burnt himself, in 1415. Many of his works,
    however, were republished in the following century; but the
    twenty-nine errors which the Council of Constance detected in his
    work on the Church would probably nowadays seem venial enough. It
    was his misfortune to live in those days when the inhumanity of
    the world was at its climax.
