" See ' Retrosp. Rev.,' n, 207-217. With Montaigne, says Mosheim, many have
classed Pomponatius, Bodinus, Rabelais, Des Perieres, Doletus, Charron,
Leo X., Bembo, Politian, Bruno, Ochinus, Paracelsus, and Taurellus as
enemies to all religion. But many of those thus charged, he adds, were
' either innocent, or profane to a less degree.' Montaigne's characteristic
it is, to be simple. Pope speaks of showing himself

' as plain
As downright Shippen, or as old Montaigne."

Montaigne, however, cannot be acquitted of great vanity and great inde-
cency, not to add some scepticism." WRANGHAM.
