John Milton, English poet Featured 19 Apr 2010 Print

John Milton, English poet

John Milton (1608-1674), English poet. Milton was born in London and was educated at St. Paul's School and at Christ's College, Cambridge. After receiving his MA in 1632 Milton embarked on six years of private study, including travels in Europe where he met Grotius, Galileo and Tasso. On his return to England Milton wrote extensively on church issues such as the power of the bishops and the morality of divorce. The English Civil War gave Milton the chance to flourish in a republican setting, but the Restoration of the monarchy in 1660 meant Milton had to spend some years in hiding from the authorities. It was in this period he started to write his classic blank verse epic poem, Paradise Lost, reflecting his despair at the failure of the revolution. This engraving by Houbraken comes from Birch's The Heads of Illustrious Persons of Great Britain, published at London in 1747


Frederick I Barbarossa Holy Roman Emperor Featured 19 Apr 2010 Print

Frederick I Barbarossa Holy Roman Emperor

Frederick I Barbarossa (1122-1190), King of Germany and Holy Roman Emperor. Born in Swabia in southern Germany, Frederick succeeded his father as Duke in 1147. Soon after this he went on the Second Crusade and despite its failure Frederick proved himself and won the confidence of the King of Gemany, Conrad III. When Conrad died, Frederick was himself elected King. Frederick undertook expeditions into Italy and was crowned Holy Roman Emperor by Pope Adrian IV. Frederick spent much of his reign brokering compromises between the German monarchy and the Italian states over the power and position of the Papacy which had previously tended to end in battle. To appease the Pope, Frederick went on the Third Crusade, but he drowned whilst bathing in the Saleph River. This woodcut comes from Giovio's Elogia vivorum bellica virtute illustrium, publised at Basle in 1596
