Description
Excerpt: I. THE COMING OF THE FRIARS. Sweet St. Francis of Assisi, would that he were here again!?Lord Tennyson. When King Richard of England, whom men call the Lion?hearted, was wasting his time at Messina, after his boisterous fashion, in the winter of 1190, he heard of the fame of Abbot Joachim, and sent for that renowned personage, that he might hear from his own lips the words of prophecy and their interpretation. Around the personality of Joachim there has gathered no small amount of mythus. He was, it appears, the inventor of that mystical method of Hermeneutics which has in our time received the name of ?the year?day theory,? and which, though now abandoned for the most part by sane men, has still some devout and superstitious advocates in the school of Dr. Cumming and kindred visionaries.
