“Gibbon's style is as luminous as irony would allow, and it shed light wherever it turned, except where prejudice darkened his view... His scholarship was immense and detailed. His footnotes are a treasury of learning lightened with wit... Child of the Enlightenment, Gibbon longed to be a philosopher”

Will (and Ariel) Durant 1885 – 1981 CE
from Rousseau and Revolution
