AN APPARENTLY UNRECORDED NOTE BY COLERIDGE ON GOETHE. Coleridge also cited the fable that the grass turned black beneath the feet of Cain after his fratricidal act, when criticising Catholicism in his 'Idea of the Christian Church' (Collected Works of Coleridge, Vol 10, p.122). Its source in Rabbinical lore has not been traced.
