  English Literature
It is not unlikely that the written literature may have begun as early as the sixth century, but at any rate, by the middle of the seventh century the traces of it are clear in the work of Cædmon, according to the testimony of Bede.
It is the custom of historians of literature to divide the literary life of Chaucer into a French, an Italian, and an English period, according as his work was influenced by the manner of each national literature.
After long years of repression they have their full freedom in the arena of literature, and there is more than a promise that when the history of the twentieth century comes to be written many Catholic names will be found in the highest places on the roll of honour.

 Italian Literature
This century in Italy, as elsewhere, is the golden age of vernacular ascetical and mystical literature, producing a rich harvest of translations from the Scriptures and the Fathers, of spiritual letters, sermons, and religious treatises no less remarkable for their fervour and unction than for their linguistic value.
Also in religious literature we have the ascetical letters of B. Giovanni Dominici (died 1419), a strenuous opponent of the pagan tendencies of the classical revival, and the vernacular sermons (1427) of St. Bernardine of Siena.
Political considerations colour most of the literature of the middle of the century, whether it be the historical writings of Cesare Balbo (1789-1853), the satirical and patriotic poems of Giuseppe Giusti (1809-50), the revolutionary lyrics of Gabriele Rossetti (1783-1854), the tragedies of Giovanbattista Niccolini (1782-1861), or the once admired romances of Francesco Domenico Guerrazzi (1804-73).

 French Literature - LoveToKnow 1911
From the point of view of the general historian of literature it may not be improper here to give a caution against the frequent use of the word "proven" in such matters.
The other, one of the most remarkable developments of sportive literature which the world has seen, produced the second indigenous literary growth of which France can boast, namely, the fabliaux, and the almost more remarkable work which is an immense conglomerate' of fabliaux, the great beast-epic of the Roman de Renart.
Side by side with these two forms of literature, the epics and romances of the higher classes, and the fabliau, which, at least in its original, represented rather the feelings of the lower, there grew up a third kind, consisting of purely lyrical poetry.

 ITALIAN LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
The rise of a literature, both written and spoken, in the vernacular began in the 13th century; a period of great political and civil revival in the Italian cities and a lively renaissance in art and culture after the difficult centuries following barbarian domination.
The prose of the 14th century was characterized by an explosion of religious literature, primarily aimed at the education and religious instruction of the people.
Italian culture and literature experienced a revival in the second half of the 18th century as a result of the spread of the ideals of the Enlightenment.

 Italian Literature
As another result, Italian literature has borne from its earliest days a strongly marked classicism, not only in the narrow sense of adherence to classical principles of style, but also in the broader sense of respect for tradition.
It fuses, too, the secular motifs of the age; the threads of the amatory conventions of the courtly love, the satiric postures of earlier vernacular writings, the idealization of knightly virtues are all woven into the philosophical-theological tapestry.
These academies were of interest primarily to the scholars and philosophers of the time, and were mainly concerned with subjects tangential to literature; it might even be contended that their influence on literature proper was not a healthy one.

 Czech Baroque Literature
Czech remained by far the majority language, however, and much valuable Czech literature was printed, including fine sermons and lyrical poetry, inspired by the revived spiritual and stylistic values of 17th-century Roman Catholicism.
In his systematic grammar Čechořečnost (1672) Rosa played a little at being a purist, too, making up some fanciful long-winded native words, but here he cheerfully exploits foreign words of politesse: one senses a Baroque facetiousness in all this.
The most lively cultivated Czech prose is to be found in abundant Catholic sermons and related devotional literature.

In other fields of literature, her "History of Rome" won her deserved renown, while the lovely romance of "Philothea" is still read with pleasure by young and old.
So far we have dealt only with those who have won their promotion and passed on from this field of work to another; but the next name on the roll of honor is that of one who is still living, the dean of American literary women, Mrs.
Stowe is still with us in the land of our sojourn, it is none the less true that she belongs to the last period of literature, not to the present.

 John Locke -- Overview [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
His knowledge of medicine and occasional practice of the art led, in 1666, to an acquaintance with Lord Ashley (afterwards, from 1672, Earl of Shaftesbury).
When Shaftesbury was made lord chancellor in 1672, Locke became his secretary for presentations to benefices, and, in the following year, was made secretary to the board of trade.
it met with immediate success, and led to a voluminous literature of attack and reply; young fellows of colleges tried to introduce it at the universities, and heads of houses sat in conclave to devise means for its suppression.
