Сторінка 319 - Mahomet 72 distinguished by the beauty of his person, an outward gift which is seldom despised, except by those to whom it has been refused. Before he spoke, the orator engaged on his side the affections of a public or private audience.

Сторінка 325 - Verily Christ Jesus the son of Mary is the apostle of God, and his Word, which he conveyed unto Mary, and a spirit proceeding from him.
Сторінка 221 - Paul; and, in every deed of mischief, he had a heart to resolve, a head to contrive, and a hand to execute.
Сторінка 321 - Conversation enriches the understanding, but solitude is the school of genius ; and the uniformity of a work denotes the hand of a single artist.

Сторінка 382 - ... who live retired in monasteries, and propose to themselves to serve God that way: let them alone, and neither kill them nor destroy their monasteries:" And you will find another sort of people that belong to the synagogue of Satan, who have shaven crowns;" be sure you cleave their skulls, and give them no quarter till they either turn Mahometans or pay tribute.
Сторінка 305 - Yet these exceptions are temporary or local; the body of the nation has escaped the yoke of the most powerful monarchies; the arms of Sesostris* and Cyrus, of Pompey and Trajan, could never achieve the conquest of Arabia...
Сторінка 388 - To the Jews and' Christians was left the somewhat milder alternative, of subjection and tribute, if they persisted in their own religion, or of an equal participation in the rights and liberties, the honours and privileges, of the faithful, if they embraced the religion of their conquerors. " Ye Christian dogs, you know your option ; the Koran, the tribute, or the sword§.
Сторінка 323 - In the author of the universe his rational enthusiasm confessed and adored an infinite and eternal being, without form or place, without issue or similitude, present to our most secret thoughts, existing by the necessity of his own nature, and deriving from himself all moral and intellectual perfection.
Сторінка 417 - The rigid sentence of Omar is repugnant to the sound and orthodox precept of the Mahometan casuists : they expressly declare, that the religious books of the Jews and Christians, which are acquired by the right of war, should never be committed to the flames ; and that the works of profane Science, historians or poets, physicians or philosophers, may be lawfully applied to the use of the faithful.
