Ah, Woodrow Wilson. Just met him, as it happens:

“Professor Woodrow Wilson of Princeton realized sympathetically this great

element of saving democracy in the Middle Ages, and has paid worthy tribute

the Middle Ages under the aristocratic systems which then prevailed was that

the men who were efficient instruments of government were drawn from the

church…”
