That might explain his vagueness about just what he
means by "yeomen."

I wonder just what the situation is with him and Gibbon.
He has come up with a couple of legitimate quotes from Gibbon,
but I note that they are all specifically related to Julian
&/or pagan religious tolerance.  Meanwhile, he "misremembers"
just about everything else he says is in there.  I suspect he's
arrogantly guessing what will be in there, and that he read
someone else who quoted Gibbon and trapped himself with a
claim that he had read the entire work.
