Excerpt from Men and Women of the Italian Reformation My recent book on "A Princess of the Italian Reformation" has been so well received that I have been encouraged to devote myself to the study of other men and women of the Italian Reformation; less highly placed than my Princess Giulia Gonzaga Colonna, but not less interesting. The story of these Italian Protestants has proved most absorbing; full of adventure, of heroic deeds, and too often of tragedy. We see the most highly gifted, the noblest in character and intellect of the sons and daughters of Italy in the sixteenth century, strongly drawn towards the doctrines of the Reformation. We follow them one by one, until the inevitable moment when they openly proclaim their new belief; henceforth they are marked down by the Roman Inquisition, and the end is only a question of time. We watch their career with breathless interest as, filled with all the devotion and fortitude of the early Christian martyrs, they shew forth the truth in their lives and seal their faith undaunted; in the flames of the Inquisition, or the more lingering martyrdom of lonely exile in an alien land, far from all that makes life precious.
