Klappentext

Excerpt from History of the French Revolution It is thought by some that the beginnings of serf dom can be traced to Gaul before Caesar's time. The policy of Rome, here, as elsewhere, was to gain the support of the aristocratic party, always local and anti federal. A feeble bond of union among cantons was afforded by the Druidical religion, which originated in Britain. It gave Caesar so much annoyance as to make him invade the Holy Island, at expense of losing many Gallic adherents. Motives like his probably actuated his successors when, about ninety years later, they renewed his attempt on Britain and extinguished Druidism in the blood of its priests. We need not, however, attach too much importance to this part of the subject; for the truth is we know extremely-flit tle about the Druids. Our real authorities, Caesar and Dion Cassius, by no means justify any one. Of a hundred familiar statements, such as that these my's tics built the remarkable structures of huge unhewn stones which are said to have witnessed their religious rites.
