entered Broadgate Hall, now Pembroke College, Oxford,
in 1599, and was elected to Parliament in 1614, after he
had acquired financial skill by a service of some years
in the Exchequer. He became a leader of the country
party, and so strenuously opposed the measures of the
court that King James I. stigmatized him as "a very ill-
tempered spirit." He represented Tavistock in all the
Parliaments held in the reign of Charles I. In 1626 he
was one of the managers of an impeachment against the
Duke of Buckingham, and made a speech for -which he
was imprisoned by the court. He was released on his
election to the third Parliament He was once a friend
of Wentworth, who, having resolved to desert the pop-
ular cause, obtained a private interview with Pym and
began to sound him in a set speech. Pym, understand-
ing his drift, stopped him short with these words : " You
need not use all this art to tell me that you have a mind
to leave us ; but, remember what I tell you, I will never
leave you while your head is on your shoulders !" In
the Parliament which met in April, 1640, Pym made a
long and celebrated speech on grievances. "A more
massive document," says Forster, " was never given to
history." Pym and Hampden were the most eminent
leaders of the popular party when the Long Parliament
met, in November, 1640. He attacked Wentworth (now
Earl of Strafford) in a powerful speech, which had such
an effect that he was unanimously, and without delay,
impeached of high treason. "The result," says Forster,
"proved this to have been, what Pym anticipated, the
master-stroke of the time. It struck instant terror into
every quarter of the court, and left the king, for a time,
powerless and alone." At the trial of Strafford he ap-
peared as accuser. His influence is thus estimated by
Clarendon: "I think Mr. Pym was at this time [1641]
the most popular man, and the most able to do hurt,
that hath lived in any time." On the 22d of November,
1641, he presented to the House the Grand Remon-
strance, a final appeal to the people. In January, 1642,
the king attempted to arrest Pym and four other mem-
bers of the House ; but they escaped. (See CHARLES
I., and HAMPDEN.) Pym had received, through Lady
Carlisle, timely notice of this attempt. At a conference
of the two Houses on the subject of grievances, in the
same month, Pym made a celebrated speech. He was
nicknamed " King Pym" by the royalists. He was ap-
pointed lieutenant-general of the ordnance of the king-
dom in November, 1643. He died in December of that
year, leaving several children. Pym was a consummate
master of parliamentary science and political tactics. He
was not extreme in his opinions, and did not partake
of the Puritanic formality and rigorism which prevailed
among the members of his party. "There is nothing
more remarkable in the speeches of Pym," says Forster,
"than what maybe emphatically termed their wisdom.
. . . The wisdom I have spoken of was, as it always
is with the greatest men, a junction of the plain and
practical with the profound and contemplative ; to such
an extent, however, in his case, and in such perfection,
as may not be equalled in that of any other speaker of
ancient or modern times, with the single exception
of Burke."

Pyrrhus. See NEOPTOLEMUS.

Pyr'rhua, [llvpfiof,] King of Epirus, a son of King
jEacides and Phthia, was born about 318 B.C. His
father was killed in battle while Pyrrhus was a child.
The young prince himself was expelled by the Epirotes
at the age of seventeen, and then joined the army of
Demetrius, who was his brother-in-law. He signalized
his courage at the battle of Ipsus, (301 B.C.) Having
mised a small army, he entered Epirus, and obtained
the throne in 295 B.C. His courage and generosity
rendered him very popular. Ambition appears to have
been his ruling passion. In 291 B.c he was involved in
a war against Demetrius, his brother-in-law, for the pos-
session of Macedonia, which he invaded in 287 B.C. The
army which Demetrius led against him, impelled by ad-
miration of the character of Pyrrhus, deserted to him in
a body, and Demetrius fled from the kingdom. Pyrrhus
divided his conquest with his ally Lysimachus, who soon
made himself master of all Macedonia. An irresistible
temptation was presented to the ambition of Pyrrhus by
the Tarentines, who in 281 B.C. solicited his aid in a war
against the Romans. His wise minister Cineas could
not prevail on him ta renounce his vast projects of for-
eign conquest. In 280 B.C. he crossed over to Italy with
about 25,000 men and a number of elephants. The
frivolous and unwarlike Tarentines failed to support him
with the large army which they had promised. He en-
countered the superior numbers of the Romans on the
river Siris, and defeated them after a long and obstinate
contest. His victory was so dearly bought that he is
reported to have said, " Another such victory, and I must
return to Epirus alone." He made overtures of peace,
which were rejected by the Roman senate.

In 279 B.C. another battle was fought, near Asculum
where the Romans lost 6000 and Pyrrhus 3500 men
Pyrrhus was unable to improve his victory, and, having
received an invitation to aid the Greeks of Sicily against
the Carthaginians, he concluded a truce with the Romans
in 278 B.C. He remained two years in Sicily, and gained
some victories, but failed to conquer the island. Hav-
ing returned to Tarentum to renew the war against the
Romans, he was defeated by M. Curius Dentatus near
Beneventum. He retired from Italy to Epirus in 274
B.C, and invaded Macedonia, of which he soon became
master in consequence of the desertion of the Macedonian
rmy from Antigonus Gonatas. At the request of Cle-
onymus, he engaged in a new enterprise, a war against
the Spartans, who repulsed his attack on their capital.
He was killed in Argos, in battle, in 272 B.c, after hav-
ing been stunned by a tile thrown from a house by a
woman. He was the greatest general of his time, and
Hannibal is reported to have said that he was the great-
ist of any age. " He was reputed," says Plutarch, "to
excel in military experience and personal prowess all the
princes of his time. But what he gained by his achieve-
ments he lost by vain hopes ; his desire of something
absent never suffered him effectually to persevere in a
present pursuit."

Pyrrhus," 1853.

Py-thag'o-ras, [Gr. Uvdayapaf ; Fr. PYTHAGORE, pe'-
ci'goR' ; It. PITAGORA, pe-ta'go-ra,] one of the most
celebrated philosophers of antiquity, was born in Samos
about 600 B.C Very little is known with certainty re-
specting his personal history. His father was Mnesar-
chus, a merchant, and generally believed to have been
a foreigner, (not a native of Samos,) but whether a
Phoenician or Pelasgian is uncertain. He is said to have
been first instructed in his own country by Creophilus
and afterwards by Pherecydes in Syros. There was a
prevailing belief among the ancients that Pythagoras
travelled very extensively, visiting Egypt, Babylon, and
even India. That he visited Egypt seems very probable



and it is perhaps not improbable that he journeyed
as far as Babylonia. The notion that he included India
in his travels would seem to have no other ground than
the circumstance that certain doctrines of his bear a
triking resemblance to some of those held by the Indian
Rahmans or Booddhists. He not only taught the doc-
rine of metempsychosis, (or transmigration of souls,)
ut, like the Hindoos, made this the ground for incul-
ating the duty of kindness and tenderness towards
nimals, and of abstinence from their flesh. It is related
riat on a certain occasion he interceded to prevent a
og from being beaten, saying that he recognized in its
ries the voice of one of his friends who had died. Py-
hagoras attached a great importance to the study of
lathematics. He is regarded as the inventor of several
mportant geometrical theorems, among which may be
lamed the following: that the three angles of a triangle
.re together equal to two right angles, and that in any
ight-angled triangle the square formed on the hypo-
enuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the two
rdes. He is said also to have been the inventor of
tringed musical instruments.

It is said that Pythagoras first made use of the word
, hilosopher, (<tiA6oo^of,) applying it to himself. He had,
we are told, witnessed the various public games of
reece, and came at length to Phlius, in Achaia. Leon,
he king of that country, was delighted with his ingenuity
and eloquence, and asked him what art or profession he
bllowed. He replied that he was a philosopher. Leon
isked him wherein philosophers differed from other men.
^ythagoras answered that as at the public games some
tvere contending for glory and others were buying and
elling for the sake of gain, but there was one class
vho came simply as spectators, so in human life there
vere those who, regarding as unworthy of a wise man
ie desire of fame or of gain, sought above all to be-
come wise : those he called philosophers, or lovers of
visdom.

Pythagoras differed essentially from the other cele-
rated teachers of wisdom among the ancient Greeks,
n that he combined the character of priest with that of
hilosopher. He appears to have given great attention to
he means of acquiring influence over the minds of men,
ind for this purpose established a secret brotherhood
among his disciples and followers. He had certain doc-
trines of which he spoke only to his chosen disciples,
which, as being strictly limited to those within the
Favoured circle, were called esoter'ic, (tourepixd.) Othei
doctrines were freely communicated to those witAmt, 01
to the people at large : these were called txottr'ic, (i^ure-
Doto.) One of the necessary parts of the discipline of his
pupils was the practice of absolute silence. According
to some authorities, they were required to maintain
silence for five years, and during that period were not
allowed once to behold the face of Pythagoras ; but this
is probably an exaggeration.

So great was his authority with his disciples that when
any one asked why they believed this or practised that,
they were wont to answer, avrdf ityri, (or IIJHI,) i.e. "he
himself said so," (in Latin, ipst dixit,) which was re-
garded as the most efficient mode of silencing all cavils

doubts.

Pythagoras, on returning from his travels, settled at
Crotona, in Italy, where for a time he seems to have pos-
sessed an almost boundless influence over the minds of
the people. Many of the most wealthy and influential
among the citizens of Crotona joined the brotherhood,
which soon became the controlling power in the state.
Its extraordinary success appears to have rendered its
members so arrogant that they became objects of jeal-
ousy and bitter hatred to those who were not admitted
to the favoured circle, that is, to the large majority of
the populace. An attack was made upon them while
assembled in one of their general meetings. The building
in which they met was set on fire, so that a great numbei
of them perished in the flames : only the younger and
more active, it is said, were able to escape. According
to one account, Pythagoras himself perished with the
others on this occasion, though some writers state that
he died at Metapontum soon after the expulsion of his
disciples from Crotona. A similar reaction took place

QUARLES



In other parts of Italy; many of the Pythagoreans were
killed, and many others were driven into exile. The
brotherhood as an organization was completely sup-
pressed. Amid the uncertainty which prevails in regard
to the history of Pythagoras and his doctrines, we can
form only an imperfect conjecture respecting the greater
number of his religious and philosophic tenets. None
of his writings are extant ; and what we know of his
philosophy is derived mainly from writers who under-
stood it very imperfectly.
