38. lappuse - In times of old, when every part of the body could think for itself, and each had a separate will of its own, they all with common consent resolved to revolt against the belly ; they knew no reason, they said, why they should toil from morning till night in its service, while the belly in the...
110. lappuse - Flaminius died bravely, sword in hand, having committed no greater military error than many an impetuous soldier, whose death in his country's cause has been felt to throw a veil over his rashness, and whose memory is pitied and honoured. The party feelings which have so coloured the language of the ancient writers respecting him, need not be shared by a modern historian...
25. lappuse - Thus, as there were seven kings, the middle of the reign of the fourth king was " made to coincide with the middle of the period assigned to the kings, the end of the year 120. Now, it is true any number of years might have been arbitrarily allotted to him ; but what decided for 23, was that this number...
25. lappuse - Now it is true any number of years might have been arbi' trarily allotted to him ; but what decided for 23 was that this ' number with that of the first secle (of Romulus and Numa) ' makes exactly 100, and that 132, the year in which his reign ' was thus made to close, was the number of the astronomical
38. lappuse - Thus resolved, they all for some time showed their spirit, and kept their word ; but soon they found, that instead of mortifying the belly by these means, they only undid themselves ; they languished for a while, and perceived, when too late, that it was owing to the belly that they had strength to work, or courage to mutiny.
114. lappuse - Rome could not brook another great town beside herself. This was the reason why even in the legendary period Alba Longa was crushed and at a subsequent period Veii was doomed to destruction. . . . Wherever the republican armies planted their iron foot, they stamped out the life of all towns which might enter into competition with Rome. It was not before Rome herself had bowed her proud head under an imperial master that municipal prosperity returned to the great centres ot art, learning and commerce...
25. lappuse - The details of the scheme can be arithmetically traced for every reign except that of the second Tarquin, the period of which, Niebuhr thinks, ' may perhaps have been ' historical.' Thus the reigns of Numa and Romulus were defined by the heroic secle of 77 years, while, to impart a more plausible historical colouring, 37 years were given to Romulus, because these with the one year of interregnum made up the 38 nundines of the cyclical year, 39 years being thus left for Numa, whose lifetime according...
9. lappuse - Campus Martius, or field of Mars, just beneath the Capitol, or great fort on the Saturnian Hill, and marched against the Sabines ; but while he was absent, Tarpeia, the daughter of the governor of the little fort he had left on the Saturnian Hill, promised to let the Sabines in on condition they would give her what they wore on their left arms...
31. lappuse - A division of the people into a ruling and a subordinate class may be traced to the very beginning-, and points indisputably to a conquest of the lands, and to the subjection of the former inhabitants, an event which had been preserved in the recollection of the people, and gave rise to the stories of the advance of the Sabines to the Capitol and of the conquest of Latium by the Etruscans. Thus there arose the contrast between citizens and Divisions subjects, Patricians and Plebeians. The body of...
287. lappuse - ... existence, as he thought, ascribed to him, he could cite in favor of his theory. By all this, he intended by no means to lower the dignity of Christ ; but would ascribe to him the greatest dignity which a being could have after God, without entirely annulling the distinction between that being and God. God created him, or begat him, with the intent through him to produce all things else...
