Synopsis: I have said elsewhere that "the Jesuits, who brought France to the verge of ruin in 1870, seemed on the very point of completing their work of destruction a year or two since; and [that] he would be a very bold man who would dare to say that the peril had passed even yet." The writer who makes such a statement assumes a grave responsibility; but if any one wishes to know how abundantly the statement can be justified he has only to turn to Mr. Arthur's pages. Mr. Arthur demands from us no confiding trustfulness. Even at some expense to the flow of his narrative, he wisely made his work a repertory of contemporary documents, either transcribed entire or quoted with great fulness. Without resort to ex parte representations of adversaries, we may thus learn from the Vatican's own organs that clerical education, which has so signally proved itself the bane of modern France, is the very groundwork of Vaticanism. And from the impressive picture of the remorse that embittered Montalembert's last hours as he looked back on the share he had taken long before in shaping the educational policy of his country, we may perhaps learn the great lesson of distinguishing between a false liberalism and the true. Information about the original edition: Published: London, 1903. Writer: William Arthur (1819-1901) Editor: William Blair Neatby Publisher: London Hodder and Stoughon Information about the present edition: Type of book: Facsimile reproduction (made of scanned images; link archive.org/details/a545521400arthuoft) Numer of pages: 807 Color interior: Black and White Color page: White Published: April, 2017 Publisher: Tar-Palandir Additional information: This book is in public domain in the United States because it was originally published prior to 1923. It is an important historical work, and as such we should preserved it in his original format. Other publishers have opted to apply OCR (optical character recognition) technology to the process, but I believe this leads to sub-optimal results (frequent typographical errors, strange characters and confusing formatting) and does not adequately preserve the historical character of the original artifact. Because of this, I think is better to reprint the original scanned images. However, this method is not perfect and there are also errors, such as blurred or missing pages, poor pictures or errant marks may have been introduced due to either the quality of the original work or the scanning process itself. Although I try to adequately clean and digitally enhance the scanned images, occassional imperfetions may appear. I appreciate your understanding of these occasional imperfections, and sincerely hope you enjoy seeing the book in a format as close as possible to that intended by the original publisher.
