Excerpt from The Religio Medici and Other Writings of Sir Thomas Browne
The greater part of the following three years was thus spent. Of the details of his life in France, Italy, and Flanders we have little knowledge but the Religio permits us one or two significant glimpses. We see the English Protestant student of medicine as he paces the streets of Montpellier or Padua with a crowd of companions even now, in the very heyday of dogmatic youth, listening, with lifted heart, to the Ave Mary bell, and moved, even to the point of weeping abundantly, as some solemn procession passes by, while my consorts, blind with opposition and prejudice, have fallen into an excess of scorn and laughter. Or we find him arguing with an Italian physician who could not believe perfectly the immortality of the soul, because Galen seemed to make a doubt thereof.
