~Plates in Detecting Letters 1
Defaced By Time
At the invitation of Prof. James
H. Breasted, head of the Oriental
Museum of the University of Chi-
cago, Prof. W. H. Worrell, of the!
University of Michigan Semitics de-
partment, is engaged in translat-
ing the only complete Coptic edi-
tion of the Book of Proverbs in ex-
istance.
Professor Worrell is studying pho-
tographs of the pages in Ann Ar-
bor, and will make occasional trips
to Chicago to check his findings:
with the original manuscript.
He will first decipher the Copticz
script, and in this work the photo-
graphic plates aid him to detect
letters which are not otherwise dis-
cernible. After the script is deciph-
ered, he will correct the errors
'made by the writer, and then will
discuss-the peculiarities of the writ-
ing with other research workers.
This is necessary, Professor Worrell
says, because in every manuscript
of this kind new words and new
g r a m m a t i c a 1 constructions are
found. The final interpretation will
be made after comparison with
other existing Coptic manuscripts.
Professor Worrell intends to pub-
lish the book in literal English so
it can be translated readily into
other languages by students of the
Bible. Usually, he says, the trans-l
lations are not literal but since
Coptic is little known he is pursu-
ing this plan.
The importance of translating
Coptic manuscript into Greek and
then into Hebrew was emphasized
yesterday by Professor Worrell who
stated that the Book of Proverbs'
translation today is most inaccu-
rate. Usually, he says, students of
the Bible seek the original Hebrew
version through Greek translations
of about the third century, but the
Greek text of the Book of Proverbs
is faulty.
This Coptic manuscript, which
belongs to the period of the fifth
to the seventh century A. D. should
reveal some interesting informa-
tion, Professor Worrell says.
The original manuscript itself is
a curious book about five by three
inches. It is known as a miniature
and comes from the. region around
Fiume, Egypt, where other minia-
tures have been unearthed. The
Book of Proverbs, which is entirely
complete in 202 pages, appears to
be part of a larger volume. If the
complete book was the old testa-
ment, which is naturally supposed,
it would have had awkward pro-
portions."
Wild tribe dances in the most cot
orful ceremonial regalia were given
by the native chieftains of East
Africa in their tribal encampment
just outside of Nairobi, Kenya, in
honor of the presence of the Prince
of Wales.
