Saint Gregory the Great

BySir Henry H. Howorth

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This is an account of the life and times of Pope Gregory the First, saint and Doctor of the Catholic Church. As Sir Henry Howorth says: "He was one of the few really remark­able men the world has seen, if distinction means stamping one's foot on the fragile sands where our lot is cast in such an impressive way that the footprints shall last for many centuries. He stood with one foot amidst the ruins of the old worn-out world and the other in the chaotic anarchy which was presently to give birth to a new world, and we may consider the year 600, which marks the middle of his most active career, as the real frontier between the old world and the new. In the case of Pope Gregory the Great, the most important of all the witnesses is himself, for he was a most voluminous and reliable writer, and has left us a great mass of largely unimpeachable materials for illustrating his own life and the sur­roundings in which he lived."
