Gibbon Chapter LXX: Rome from 1300 to 1590

A survey of the history of Rome from 1300 to 1590, which covers the history of Rienzi (which I knew nothing about), the Great Schism (which I did know something about) and the government of Rome once the Popes had returned. See also notes on how silly it is to have a poet laureate, the Pope as temporal prince, the Great Schism, how power transforms people, the influence of holy women, and who was right in the end.

One more chapter to go!

    UK mailboxes aren't waterproof?! That seems like an odd design.
