READING NOTEBOOK


At mid[sixteenth]century, Christendom was ostensibly divided between Catholics and Protestants. But an even deeper cleavage divided militants from pragmatists. The latter would let men alone with their consciences, provided these observances did not disturb peace and propriety; the former detested such public accommodations as courtesies to Satan.


--Simon Schama, "The Siegen Affair," The American Scholar, Autumn 1999, p. 17
