Bowden : Life of Hildebrand

Benjamin Jowett to Emily Tennyson, May 1868: 'I am glad that Alfred is thinking of Hildebrand. I remember a long time ago reading Bowden's Life of him, and either the man or the book struck me greatly. 'Hildebrand's dying in exile might give an opportunity of drawing first the Roman Catholic Ideal, secondly, the impossibility of it, notwithstanding its grandeur.'

Century: 1800-1849 / 1850-1899     Reader/Listener/Group: Benjamin Jowett      Print: Book
