The connection between tree and serpent-worship is often so intimate that we may expect one to throw light on the other. In pacing its echoing floors, I hear the sound of the footsteps of my youth, and the dead start from their slumbers!… A _Rape of the Sabines_, in the inner room, by Rubens, is, we think, the most tasteless picture in the Collection: to see plump, florid viragos struggling with bearded ruffians, and tricked out in the flounces, furbelows, and finery of the court of Louis XIV.

As we find it difficult to picture the double direction of the conscious activity in all the phases of its continuous development, we separate off these two tendencies on the one hand and the activity of the self on the other: we thus get an impartially active ego hesitating between two inert and, as it were, solidified courses of action. The ‘Lex Scania Antiqua’ might perhaps be selected as fairly typical of Danish ancient custom, as the Gulathing has been taken as typical of Norse custom. 8.
