Commentary
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

Harnessed - More probably, "marshalled" or "in orderly array."

Courted or feared, shunned or flattered, reverently looked up to or laughed at, he was equally a power everywhere, both ecclesiastically and politically, as belonging to the most influential, the most zealous, and the most closely-connected religions
