From Chapter 66 of the Decline & Fall

From the conclusion of the history, I should fix the date to the year 1444, four years after the synod, when great ecclesiarch had abdicated his office (section xii. p. 330 -350). His passions were cooled by time and retirement; and, although Syropulus is often partial, he is never intemperate.
