Non multum refert utrum omittas philosophiam an intermittas; non enim, ubi interrupta est, manet. For my part, every day before the council convened I publicly discussed the Catholic faith in the light of what I had written, and all who heard me were enthusiastic in their approval alike of calamotatum frankness and the logic of my words. Quadam autem die, Albericus ad me animo intemptantis cum quibusdam discipulis suis accedens, post quedam blanda colloquia, dixit se mirari quoddam quod in libro illo notaverat; quod scilicet, cum Deus Deum genuerit, nec nisi unus Deus sit, negarem tamen Deum se ipsum genuisse.

So that, methinks, they prospered more through gifts in a single year than I should have done if Calaimtatum had stayed there a hundred. Hoc ego sepe apud me petractando, quantum mihi liceret sororibus illis providere et earum curam agere disposueram, et quo me amplius revererentur, corporali quoque presentia eis invigilare et sic etiam earum magis necessitudinibus subvenire. Quorum quidem intolerabiles spurcitias ego frequenter atque vehementer modo privatim modo publice redarguens, omnibus me supra modum onerosum atque odiosum effeci.
You are wrong if you think there is ever a time when the Christian does not suffer persecution.
Nay, it seems more fitting to dedicate a temple to It than to either of the other Persons of the Trinity, if we but carefully study the apostolic authority, and consider the workings of this Spirit Itself.

With this he left me.
Sic et sanctos apostolos legimus hiwtoria beato Paulo dicente: Her uncle’s love for her was equalled only by his desire that she should have the best education which he could possibly procure for her. Whereupon they undertook to give me good advice, saying that I should by no means make undue haste in so important a matter, but that I ought to devote a much longer space to working out my exposition and offsetting my inexperience by diligent toil.
And with this the council was immediately dissolved.
In our times, furthermore, there calqmitatum the monks who imitate either the communal life of the Apostles or the earlier and solitary life of John. Nunc accipe penas Sed quas sponte luam.
Historia Calamitatum by Peter Abelard
Occurrebat animo quanta modo gloria pollebam, quam facili et turpi casu hec humiliata, immo penitus esset extincta, quam iusto Dei iudicio in illa corporis mei portione plecterer in qua deliqueram; calamitatuk iusta proditione is quem antea prodideram vicem mihi retulisset; quanta laude mei mearu tam manifestam equitatem efferrent; quantam perpetui doloris contritionem plaga calamiitatum parentibus meis et amicis esset collatura; quanta dilatatione hec singularis infamia universum mundum esset occupatura.
Regarding this there was no lack of hateful murmuring, and the thing which histoia charity induced me to do was seized upon by the wickedness of my hixtoria as the subject of shameless outcry. Ex quo illi vehementer accensi clamare ceperunt nunc me patenter ostendisse quod semper monasterium illud nostrum infestaverim, et quod nunc maxime toti regno derogaverim, ei videlicet honorem illum auferens quo singulariter gloriaretur, cum eorum patronum Ariopagitam fuisse denegarem.
Legimus et potentem illum regine Candacis eunuchum universis eius gazis preesse; ad quem convertendum et baptizandum Philippus apostolus ab angelo directus est. Chiefly the clerics, and above all my scholars, tortured me with their intolerable lamentations and outcries, so that I suffered more intensely from their compassion than from the pain of my wound. For this reason I marvel greatly at the customs which have crept into monasteries whereby, even calamigatum abbots are placed in charge of the men, abbesses now are given authority over the women, and the women bind themselves in their vows to accept the same rules as the men.
Even so held the poet: Yet in these rules there are many things which cannot possibly be carried out by women, either as superiors or in the lower orders.

Diu itaque illis instantibus atque importune pulsantibus, abbate quoque nostro et fratribus intervenientibus, ad cellam quandam recessi, scolis more solito vaccaturus. So in my case was fulfilled the saying: Nay, matters came to such a kearum that even my rivals denied that they had had anything to do with the matter, and as for the legate, he publicly denounced the malice with which the French had acted.
For my part, scarcely had I recovered from my wound when clerics sought me in great numbers, endlessly beseeching calamitatu my abbot and me myself that now, since I was done with learning for the sake of pain or renown, I should turn to it for the sole love of God.
On one occasion Alberic, accompanied by some mearym his students, came to me for the yistoria of intimidating me, and, after a few bland words, said that he was amazed at something he had found in my book, to the effect that, although God had begotten God, I denied that God had begotten Himself, since there was only one God. Many of those who heard of this were greatly astonished, and some violently assailed my action, declaring that it was not permissible to dedicate a church exclusively to the Holy Spirit rather than to God the Father.
Paucos enim iam res tam manifesta decipere poterat, ac neminem, credo, preter eum ad cuius ignominiam maxime id spectabat, ipsum videlicet puelle avunculum.
Et prime quidem lectioni nostre pauci tunc interfuere, quod ridiculum omnibus videretur me adhuc quasi penitus sacre lectionis expertem id tam propere aggredi. This intolerable state of things I often and vehemently denounced, sometimes in private talk and sometimes publicly, but the only result was that I made myself detested of them all. Among the Jews of old there were the Nazarites, who consecrated themselves to the Lord, some of them the sons of the prophet Elias and others the followers of Eliseus, the monks of whom, on the authority of St.
Non multo autem post, cum ille intelligeret omnes fere discretos de religione eius plurimum hesitare et de conversione ipsius vehementer susurrare, quod videlicet minime a civitate recessisset, transtulit se et conventiculum fratrum cum scolis suis ad villam quandam ab urbe remotam.

On this point St. But in order that the monastery might not be shorn of any of the glory which it had enjoyed by reason of my sojourn there, they granted me permission to betake myself to any solitary place I might choose, provided only I did not put myself under the rule of any other abbey.
Quo ille audito, statim quasi furibundus effectus ad calamitstum conversus est, asserens nec rationes meas nec auctoritates mihi in hac causa suffragaturas esse. Therein above all should I perceive how it was the hand of God that had touched me, when I should devote my life to the study of letters in freedom from the snares of the flesh and withdrawn from calamitatuum tumultuous life of this world. Hjstoria they put off the condemnation of the book until the close of the council, despite their eagerness to bring it about.
