Klappentext

Excerpt from The Cabinet Portrait Gallery of British Worthies, Vol. 3

From that ci after a stay of only a few months, goes on All is while it appeareth that Cromwell had yet no sound taste nor judgment of religion, but was wild and youthful, without sense or regard of God and his word, as he himself was woont oft times to declare unto Cranmer, Archbishop of Canterbury, showing what a ruf fian he was in his oung days, and how he was in the wars of the Duke of ourbon at the siege of Rome and so continued, till at length by learning the text of the New Testament without book, of Erasmus's transla tion, in his going and coming from Rome (as is aforesaid) he began to be touched and called to better understand ing.

But the story is talc; in a wa equally unintelligible in an elaborate article in the °ographra Britannica,' where, after men tion of his 'curney to Rome in 1510, the narrative pro coeds Whilst he remained in Italy, he served for some time as a soldier under the Duke of Bourbon, and was at the sacking of Rome; and at Bologna he assisted John Russell, Esq., afterwards Earl of Bedford, in mak ing his escape when he had like to be betrayed into the hands of the French, being secretly in those parts about our king's affairs. And then comes the anecdote about his getting the translation of the New Testament by heart, in his journey to and from Rome. Dr. Lin gard, who seems to have consulted Roman Catholic authorities, affirms generally that Cromwell in his early youth served as a trooper in the wars of Italy; from the army he passed to the service of a Venetian merchant; and, after some time, returning to England, exchanged the counter for the study of the law.'
