Excerpt from A Miscellany: Containing Richard of Bury's Philobiblon; The Basilikon Dōron of King James I; Monks and Giants; The Cypress Crown; The Library

Arguing further on the contrary side, let us call to mind from the events of former times, how greatly it profited the whole Christian republic, not indeed to enervate students by the luxuries of Sardanapalus, nor yet by the riches of Croesus, but rather to support the poor in scholastic medio crity. How many have we seen, how many have we collected from writings, who, not being distinguished by brilliancy of birth, nor boasting of hereditary succession, but supported alone by the piety of just men, have deserved the Apostolical Chair, and most honourably presided over L'ts faithful subjects, have subjected the necks of the proud and exalted to the ecclesiastical yoke, and easily procured the liberty of the Church!
