Emperor of [the] Romans. "They say about Maurice that he was generous about the magnificence of speeches, and quite brilliantly honoured those who strove in that best of the fields of study. It is also mentioned that Maurice forgave his subjects a third of all taxes."[1]
This man was mobilised as a general over the West by Tiberius Caesar.[2] This Maurice was not bred in wars and struggle, but otherwise he was rational and dignified and quite precise.[3] He mingled in himself both opposites: the weight of intellect, and meekness, free of any disdain and haughtiness. That Maurice was such a person was proved by his leadership over matters, once inherited — as more glorious through experience.
