Descrizione
The case had been one of peculiar interest to Mr. White; for Dr. Flade, jurist, scholar, head of his city's courts, head for a time of her university, had brought on his own fate by his attempt to check the persecutions, and from his trial, long lost to scholars, we might hope to learn the details of his story. And how our hearts leaped when the manuscript really came, when it proved what we had hoped, and all but complete, telling us the whole sad tale of the old judge's fate, from his arrest in 1587 to that closing scene in September of 1589, when he was brought for the last time into the court-room, there to hear from the bench where for a generation he had himself presided in justice and mercy, his own terrible sen tence Dietrich Flade, the accused, now standing in the pres ence of this court, by reason of his crime, in that he has denied God, devoted himself to the Evil Fiend, served him and sinned with him, dealt with witchcraft and done despite to the common weal, wrought injury to grain and herb, shall be punished with fire from life unto death, as we him hereby thereunto doom, sentence.
