Transcript 18 The State: Its Historic RSle. England and a great number of writers have done it for Germany,— and we see that the work of the artisan, and even of a simple day-labourer, was remunerated at the time by a wage not even reached by skilled workmen nowadays. The account-books of the University of Oxford and certain English estates, also those of a great number of German and Swiss towns are there to testify to it. On the other hand, consider the artistic finish and the quantity of decorative work which a workman of those days used to put into the beautiful work of art he did. as well as in the simplest thing of domestic life,—a railing, a candelstick, an article of pottery—and you see at once that he did not know the pressure, the hurry, the overwork of our times; he could forge, sculpture, weave, embroider at his leisure— as but a very small number of artist-workers can do nowadays. And if we glance over the donations to the churches and to houses which belonged to the parish, to the guild or to the city, be it in works of art-- m decorative panels, sculptures, cast or wrought iron and even silver works-or in simple mason's or carpenter's work, we understand what degree of well-being those cities had realized in their midst.
