Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1879 edition. Excerpt: ...The Old French payer comes from the Latin paean (pax, pacis), to make peace, to pacify, and was used in the same sense, and also, to satisfy, and then because payment satisfies a debt, to pay. Littre' does not notice the obsolete use, but he quotes from a psalter of the thirteenth century, where we at once recognize it: "Par ton commandement est la mers troblee et par ton commandement sera pa'ie "? Ps. (89) lxxxviii, 10. In English we find it constantly used: "Thi voyage mai noht pai me Bot ef thou do that I bid the." E. M. H., Small, 54. (1) Test. Ebor., Raine, II, 204. It may be curious to compare the above with a similar provision for masses by the late Cardinal Antonelli, who died on the 6th Nov. 1876. A translation of his will appeared in the Timet (Dec. 7, 1876), whilst these notes were passing through the press: "During the eight days following my death, I order that a hundred masses a day be celebrated with the alms of 30 sous() for each mass. A part of these masses Bhall be caused to be celebrated by the Mendicant Friars." The payments for masses--the pretium of Lyndwood, and retribution of later French writers--are now designated eUemoyna, and the amount is fixed by the bishop.--Bcned xiv, Dr Syiwdo Dioeccsana, Lib. v. c. 9. Dens, Theohig., Dublin, 1832, VIII, 135. As explained in this last-quoted Manual, no priest, secular or regular, can exact more than the sum Bo fixed. They may receive more, or ask less, but this last may sometimes be forbidden "tie hinc consuetudo introducatur minus dandi in prajudicivm alwrum."
