Excerpt from Saint Anselm Have been more appreciated on the Continent than in England. He has attracted much notice among scholars in France and Germany and I have to ac knowledge my obligations to several. The essay on St. Anselm by the eminent Roman Catholic Pro fessor Mohler, a short and imperfect but interesting one, was translated into English in 1842. The Pro testant Professor Hasse, of Bonn (anselm wrz Can terbury: Bonn, 1843, has treated both Anselm's history and his scientific position with the care and knowledge of a German. There is also a work by Pro fessor Franck, of Tubingen (1 which I do not know. The late Emile Saisset discussed Anselm's philosophy, and, incidentally, his genius and fortunes, in a short paper, marked with his warmth of sympathy, fair ness, and temperateness, which was published first in the Revue des Deux Menzies, and has since been republished in a volume of Miscellanies (melanges d'histoire, de Morale et de Critique Paris, Anselm has also been the subject of an admir able work, admirable in its spirit as well as in its ability, by M. Charles de Remusat (saint Amelme de Cantorbe'ry: Paris, 1853; zud edition, M. De Montalembert published a short fragment on Anselm (paris, which was to be part of an introduction to his history of St. Bernard, and which, like all that he wrote, was written with power and eloquence and bore the marks of the warfare in which he passed his life. There are also two unpretendingbut very careful and useful studies on Lanfranc and on Anselm, published at Caen in 1853, by M. Charma, a professor in the Faculty of Letters at Caen; it is to be regretted that they have not been reprinted. In English, there are fair notices of him in the Bziograp/zia Britannica Literaria (london, by Mr. T. Wright; and by Mr. Scratchley in the Biograp/zieal Dictionary (london, I have referred for some local matters to Aubert's Val/e'e d'a oste, and to a work on St. Anselm by M. Crozet-mouchet, Professor of Theology at Pigne rol (paris and Tournai, who writes with the enthusiasm and something of the credulity of one who feels himself St. Anselm's countryman. Anselm's philosophy has of itself been the subject of several elaborate works. The Proslogion and M analogion were translated into French, and commented on by M. Bouchitte (le Rationalisme Claretien Paris, Other works, German, Italian, and Spanish, will be found referred to in Hasse and De Remusat. I must add that an entirely different estimate of Anselm's character from what is given in these pages, and an opposite judgment on his career, are to be found in Dean Hook's important contribution to our Church.
