His family called him besid [besides] himself, his church thought him a heretic, this nation regarded him as a public menace to be [liquidated?], he was betrayed by his friend and crucified by his government. Yet his ideas lived on. No [Crossed Out: I] nail could pierce them and no tomb could bury them.
