Excerpt from Sketches of the Historical Past of Italy: From the Fall of the Roman Empire to the Earliest Revival of Letters and Arts

The conjuction of the past with the present of Italy through the intervening Middle Ages, and the paramount influence exerted by that country over the civilization of Europe, must always strike the historical student with interest and with thoughtful curiosity.

It is our aim to unite the scattered and broken links of the great chain of circumstances which brought on that change in society we call "our own," and which, from the dissolving elements of heathendom, finally produced the revival of letters, science, and art, irradiating Italy with a glory unknown before.

The writer of these pages has been struck, amidst the voluminous mass of erudite and philosophical labours on the Dark and Middle Ages, with the want of a synthetic view of this subject, reduced to a compass accessible to the general reader - with the absence of a volume, in fact, in which the threads of the many stories of the several races which have struggled together in the Peninsula should be woven in one narrative, clearly showing the marked characteristics of all, and yet pointing out those common influences by which the harsher features of dissimilarity were fused, and thus fixing out the basis on which arose the Italy of our later times.

The writer diffidently begs to submit these pages to the public, in the hope of supplying, in some degree, this want.
