Excerpt from The Church in Germany

The deficiency will eventually be filled by Hauck, and my great regret is that I have had to undertake this task without his masterly guidance further than to the death of S. Boniface.

The difficulty of writing the history of the Church in Germany during the mediaeval period is, as has been said, the fact that it is almost inextricably inter laced with the history of the empire. As the space accorded me did not allow of a history of Germany, I have done what appeared to me to be the right thing to do under the circumstances, that is, I have indicated the general condition of affairs ecclesiastical, and then given salient instances illustrative of the situation.

An English Churchman regards the Reformation in Germany from his own peculiar standpoint. He is not in cordial sympathy with a movement which destroys the very foundations of historic Christianity, and formulates a doctrine of free justification, that exercises a paralysing effect on the conscience; and yet he cannot deny that the exasperation caused by the wrong-doing of the Papacy provoked it, and that it was inevitable.
