Pbogeess of Egyptology.

Christian period,80 and, incidentally, an interesting photograph of a Coptic
priest with two young deacons, in liturgical vestments, is given.

Mes. Lewis's description of her visits to the monasteries of Anthony
and Paul and to those of Nitria is accompanied by several photographs of
the buildings and the monks.81

K. Heeold, who spent an Easter in the Nitrian monasteries, describes
them and gives some photographs of the buildings.82

Father E. Noueeit S.J., gives a statistical viewS3 of the various
Christian sects in Upper Egypt, an account of the efforts of Leo XIII to
increase the Catholic body, and of the prospects of its attracting large
numbers of the Copts. He disclaims emphatically any attempt to
"latinize" their converts, who he hopes may be employed in evangelizing
inner Africa.

This report cannot be closed without a reference to the great loss which
Coptic studies have sustained by the untimely, though hardly unbooked
for, death of Foebes Eobinson, whose long illness ended fatally on
February 7th, 1904. Ill-health and arduous college duties hindered him
from producing more than one book {Coptic Apocryphal Gospels) and one
long article (Egyptian Version, in Hastings's I)B.) upon the subjects
which interest us here ; and the admirable quality of what he accomplished
does but make the regret the deeper, that he was not permitted to carry
out his further plans. It is understood that the critical edition of the
Sa'idic New Testament which he and Cronin had in hand will be carried
on by the latter. • W. E. Ceum.
