But with these relikes, whanne that he fond A poure persone dwelling up on- lond, Upon a day he gat him more moneie Than that the persone gat in monethes tweie.

The fountain of Saint Wenefrede in Wales, used in...
Σελίδα 103 - Mohammedanism' from the soil of the island. On the second conquest of Crete by Mohammedan invaders, some of the wealthier inhabitants of Megalo-Kastron [Herakleion] and its neighbourhood are said, after openly renouncing Christianity, to have retained, in secret, the faith in which they had been baptized; and to have handed it down, in the same manner, to their descendants.
