Strana 88 - The door for the middle chamber was in the right side of the house: and they went up with winding stairs into the middle chamber, and out of the middle into the third.
Strana 76 - On one side of the house machicolated parapets, embrasures, bastions, and all the show of strong defence, and round the corner of the building a conservatory leading to the principal rooms, through which a whole company of horsemen might penetrate at one smash into the heart of the mansion ! - for who would hammer against nailed portals when he could kick his way through the greenhouse ?' are summed up in the two principles of Gothic or Christian architecture which he delivered to the world.
Strana 114 - Basil noteth*: manifest notwithstanding it is, that the very majesty and holiness of the place where God is worshipped hath, in regard of us, great virtue, force, and efficacy, for that it serveth as a sensible help to stir up devotion, and in that respect no doubt bettereth even our holiest and best actions in this kind.
Strana 117 - Book looking toward the east, or upper end of the chancel. And very reasonable was this usage ; for when the people were spoken to, it was fit to look towards them ; but when God was spoken to, it was fit to turn from the people.

Strana 25 - St. Katherine, near Bristol, in the diocese of Bath and Wells, which I henceforth profess as ordained by the holy fathers, as much as is consistent with the said rule, or hereafter shall be consistent for me to observe, and I will lead my life according to regular discipline.
Strana 38 - ... hands, out of reverence towards so great treasure and the whole country, into three basons before the altar of Peter the apostle, and the holy confessors Dubricius, Teilo, and Oudoceus; immediately, by the touch of the holy relics, the water bubbled on all sides in a marvellous manner, as if a great red hot stone had been thrown into it And they did not only wonder, being amazed at the various ebullitions throughout the whole bason, but also because they perceived the water to be very hot. Not...
Strana 117 - ... baptisteries. We have no other remainder of this rite but the name: for hence it is that we call our baptisteries " Fonts," which, when religion found peace, were built and consecrated for the more reverence and respect of the sacrament. These were placed at first at some distance from the church ; afterwards in the church porch, and that significantly, because baptism is the entrance into the Church mystical, as the porch of the temple.
Strana 88 - The nethermost chamber was five cubits broad, and the middle was six cubits broad, and the third was seven cubits broad: for without in the wall of the house he made narrowed rests round about, that the beams should not be fastened in the walls of the house.
