Inhaltsangabe: 'At Siena was discovered another statue of Venus, to the huge joy of the inhabitants. A great concourse, with much feasting and honour, set it up over the fountain called "Il Fonte Gaja," as an adornment.... 'But great tribulation having come upon the land by reason of the Florentines, there arose one of the council, a citizen, and spake in this wise: "Fellow-citizens, since the finding of this figure we have had much evil hap, and if we consider how strictly idolatry is prohibited by our faith, what shall we think but that God hath sent us this adversity by reason of sin? I advise that we remove this image from the public square of the city, deface it, break it in pieces, and send it to be buried in the territory of the Florentines." 'All agreeing with this opinion, they confirmed it by a decree; and the thing was put into execution, and the statue was buried within our confines.
Inhaltsangabe: 1928. This book is incomparable in the magic power of evoking startlingly vivid pictures of the Middle Ages. It is a gorgeous pageant, full of pomp and magnificence. Here and there the reader is given a glimpse into the mortal and humble frailties and exigencies behind the grandeur. This work is a fabulous historical novel that is full of a sly, crisp humor and contains some portions which are veritable poems in prose.
