Transcript DAMASCUS. 423 I an beings. It has many passages of poetic beauty, religious fervour, and wise counsel, ixed with absurdities, bombast, and low sensuality. It abounds in repetitions and dictions, which are not removed by the convenient theory of abrogation. It alternately and repels, and is a most wearisome book to read. Gibbon calls the Koran " a 1 'ous testimony to the unity of God," but also, very properly, an " endless, incoherent 1 odv of fable and precept and declamation, which seldom excites a sentiment or idea, GREEK INSCRIPTION ON AN ANCIENT AND DISUSED DOORWAY OF THE GREAT MOSQUE, In the south wall; it can only be seen from the roof of the Silversmiths' Bazaar. The words are, "Thy kingdom, O Christ, is an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations." which sometimes crawls in the dust, and is sometimes lost in the clouds." Reiske denounces it as the most absurd book, and a scourge to a reader of sound common-sense. doethe, one of the best judges of literary and poetic merit, characterizes the style as severe, great, terrible, and at times truly sublime. " Detailed injunctions," he says, " of things ed and forbidden, legendary stories of Jewish and Christian religion, amplifications of all c s' boundless tautologies and repetitions, form the body of this sacred volume, which to us, en as we approach it, is repellent anew, next attracts us ever anew, and fills us with iration, and finally forces us into veneration." He finds the kernel of Islam in the second where belief and unbelief, with heaven and hell as their sure reward, are set over *n contrast.
