Transcript 472 PICTURESQUE PALESTINE. island, the portico of the great temple was converted into a chapel and dedicated to St. Stephen. ' This good work,' says a Greek inscription traced by some monkish hand of the period, ' was done by the well-beloved of God, the Abbot Bishop Theodore.'--The little basilica, we may be sure, had a cluster of mud huts upon the roof, and I fancy that the abbot and his monks installed themselves in that row of cells in the east side of the great colonnade, where the priests of Isis dwelt before them. As for the village, it must have been, like Luxor, swarming with dusky life, noisy with the babble of children, the cackling of poultry, and the barking of dogs, sending up thin pillars of blue smoke at noon, echoing to the measured chime of the prayer THE TEMPLE OF ABOO SIMBEL, IN NUBIA. The most wonderful of all the temples of Rameses the Great, excavated in the solid rock. bell at morn and even, and sleeping at night as soundly as if no ghostlike mutilated gods were looking on mournfully in the moonlight. The gods are avenged now—the creed that dethroned them is dethroned. Abbot Theodore and his successors and the religion they taught and the simple folk that listened to their teaching are gone and forgotten. For the Church of Christ, which still languishes in Egypt, is extinct in Nubia. It lingered long, though doubtless in some such degraded and barbaric form as it wears in Abyssinia to this day. But it was absorbed by Islam at last, and only a ruined convent perched here and there upon some solitary height, or a few crosses rudely carved upon the walls of a Ptolemaic temple, remain to show that Christianity once passed that way." * * Miss A. B. Edwards, " One Thousand Miles up the Nile," chap. xii.
