Excerpt from The Tombs of the Popes: Landmarks in Papal History

In one instance only have I departed from the scheme of the original. Gregorovius relegated the Latin epitaphs to an Appendix, and placed in the body of the text his own translations in German hexa meters. In spite of his genuine poetic talent, these latter form the one weak point of the essay, and do not encourage me to venture upon a poetical version. I have therefore placed the Latin in the text, giving the translations in footnotes. More than one of these epitaphs is obscure and barbarous, and in such cases (see pp. 30, 52, 68) I have followed the reading given by Gregorovius in his German translation.
