In that senseChristendom is larger than creation; as creation had beenbefore Christ.
But in the case of many othersI fancy there entered at this point a new negation.
And how else could they have extended philosophy merely byextending geography? People became suddenly silent about them and walked stiffly past them.
The Church contains what the world does not contain.
It needs a tradition to make a convention. But the wave wasalready stooping; for it was only the wave of the world. It is a psychologicaldifference which can outlast any theologies. The Theosophists build a pantheon; but it is only a pantheonfor pantheists. It is the same with all the modernattempts at Syncretism. But the practical difficulty is also a parable. But the practical difficulty is also a parable. Since that hour no mythologies have been made in the world. Theology is thought,whether we agree with it or not. Belloc took for a test of understanding; incipe parve puerrisu cognoscere matrem. One of the Eclogues has even been claimed as a prophecy of whatdid happen.

It is profoundlytrue to say that after that moment there could be no slaves. It is profoundlytrue to say that after that moment there could be no slaves. But in the case of many othersI fancy there entered at this point a new negation. But we realise the usury of the Patriciansbecause of the perpetual revolt of the Plebeians.
There is really a difference between the man who knows it andthe man who does not. Where is the Holy childamid the Stoics and the ancestor-worshippers?
A man couldnot be a means to an end, at any rate to any other mans end.
