Page 537 - Imsla (Murat., Antiq., i. 1039)' The spirit of the age overthrew him as it had overthrown Frederick II. He strove after a goal which had already become fantastic ; he was the last pope who boldly conceived the thought of an all-ruling hierarchy, as Gregory VII., and Innocent III. had conceived it. Boniface VIII., however, was only an unfortunate reminiscence of these popes.

Paul's had lighted on gold florins, they would necessarily have collected fabulous wealth, but the heaps of money both in S. Peter's and S.
