Gospel of Thomas Latin Text (Infancy 4)

By: Anonymous

When there was a tumult because search was made by Herod for our Lord Jesus Christ, that he might slay him, then said an angel unto Joseph: Take Mary and her child and flee into Egypt from the face of them that seek to slay him. Now Jesus was two years old when he entered into Egypt. And as he walked through a sown field he put forth his hand and took of the ears and put them upon the fire and ground them and began to eat. [And he gave such favour unto that field that ye...

The Virgin of the Sun

By: H. Rider Haggard

My Dear Little, Some five-and-thirty years ago it was our custom to discuss many matters, among them, I think, the history and romance of the vanished Empires of Central America.

Immortals Crowned by the French Academy : Fromont and Risler, Vol. 1

By: Alphonse Daudet

PREFACE: Nominally Daudet, with the Goncourts and Zola, formed a trio representing Naturalism in fiction. He adopted the watchwords of that school, and by private friendship, no less than by a common profession of faith, was one of them. But the students of the future, while recognizing an obvious affinity between the other two, may be puzzled to find Daudet's name conjoined with theirs.

The Ghost at Massingham Mansions

By: Ernest Bramah

As public nuisances—or private ones for that matter, replied his friend. So long as they are content to behave as ghosts I am with them. When they begin to meddle with a state of existence that is outside their province—to interfere in business matters and depreciate property—to rattle chains, bang doors, ring bells, predict winners and to edit magazines and to attract attention instead of shunning it, I cease to believe. My sympathies are entirely with the sensible old ...

The Heart of the Race Problem

By: Quincy Ewing

Excerpt: ?And, instead of going to the Congress of the United States and saying there is no distinction made in Mississippi, because of color or previous condition of servitude, tell the truth, and say this ?

Acts of the Holy Apostle and Evangelist John the Theologian

Excerpt: WHEN Agrippa, whom, on account of his plotting against Peace, they stoned and put to death, was king of the Jews, Vespasian Caesar, coming with a great army, invested Jerusalem; and some prisoners of war he took and slew, others he destroyed by famine in the siege, and most he banished, and at length scattered up and down. And having destroyed the temple, and put the holy vessels on board a ship, he sent them to Rome, to make for himself a temple of peace, and a...

Count Robert of Paris

By: Sir Walter Scott, 1st Baronet

Excerpt: Sir Walter Scott transmitted from Naples, in February, 1832, an Introduction for CASTLE DANGEROUS; but if he ever wrote one for a second Edition of ROBERT OF PARIS, it has not been discovered among his papers. Some notes, chiefly extracts from the books which he had been observed to consult while dictating this novel, are now appended to its pages; and in addition to what the author had given in the shape of historical information respecting the principal real p...

Teaser a Drama in One Act

By: Frank J. Morlock

Excerpt: As the curtain rises, we see the wife, talking on the telephone. It is a kitchen?living room with the main entrance center left. The bedroom door is at the right, near the audience. The room is decorated in good taste with no signs of economy. The inhabitants have obviously got money. There is a couch center left and a bar with a telephone. Anne is talking in a relaxed way. She is pretty, a good housewife, but not strikingly good?looking; obviously the sort of w...

The Memoirs of Napoleon, V7, 1804

By: Louis Antoine Fauvelet De Bourrienne

Excerpt: arranging the peace; but his intention was to mark his return to the ministry by the renewal of the implacable hatred he had vowed against France. Still, I have always thought that the conclusion of peace, however necessary to England, was an error of the Cabinet of London. England alone had never before acknowledged any of the governments which had risen up in France since the Revolution; and as the past could not be blotted out, a future war, however successfu...

Manalive

By: Gilbert Keith Chesterton

Excerpt: A wind sprang high in the west, like a wave of unreasonable happiness, and tore eastward across England, trailing with it the frosty scent of forests and the cold intoxication of the sea. It a million holes and corners it refreshed a man like a flagon, and astonished him like a blow. In the inmost chambers of intricate and embowered houses it woke like a domestic explosion, littering the floor with some professor?s papers till they seemed as precious as fugitive...

The Chaplet, Or de Corona

By: Tertullian, Christian Theologian of Carthage

Excerpt: IV. THE CHAPLET, OR DE CORONA.(1) Chapter 1. VERY lately it happened thus: while the bounty of our most excellent emperors(2) was dispensed in the camp, the soldiers, laurel?crowned, were approaching. One of them, more a soldier of God, more stedfast than the rest of his brethren, who had imagined that they could serve two masters, his head alone uncovered, the useless crown in his hand already even by that peculiarity known to every one as a Christian was nobly...

The Shepherd of the Hills

By: Harold Bell Wright

All day a fine rain had fallen steadily, and the mists hung heavy over the valley. The lower hills were wrapped as in a winding sheet; dank and cold. The trees were dripping with moisture. The stranger looked tired and wet. By his dress, the man was from the world beyond the ridges, and his carefully tailored clothing looked strangely out of place in the mountain wilderness. His form stooped a little in the shoulders, perhaps with weariness, but he carried himself with t...

The Well of Pen-Morfa

By: Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell

Of a hundred travellers who spend a night at Tre-Madoc, in North Wales, there is not one, perhaps, who goes to the neighbouring village of Pen-Morfa. The new town, built by Mr Maddocks, Shelley's friend, has taken away all the importance of the ancient village—formerly, as its name imports, 'the head of the marsh;' that marsh which Mr Maddocks drained and dyked, and reclaimed from the Traeth Mawr, till Pen-Morfa, against the walls of whose cottages the winter tides lashe...

Shirley

By: Charlotte Bronte

Excerpt: PART ONE. Chapter 1. LEVITICAL. Of late years an abundant shower of curates has fallen upon the north of England: they lie very thick on the hills; every parish has one or more of them; they are young enough to be very active, and ought to be doing a great deal of good. But not of late years are we about to speak; we are going back to the beginning of this century: late years?present years are dusty, sunburnt, hot, arid; we will evade the noon, forget it in sies...

The Dunes

By: Prophet Muhammad

046.001 Ha. Mim. 046.002 The revelation of the Scripture is from Allah the Mighty, the Wise. 046.003 We created not the heavens and the earth and all that is between them save with truth, and for a term appointed. But those who disbelieve turn away from that whereof they are warned. 046.004 Say (unto them, O Muhammad): Have ye thought on all that ye invoke beside Allah ? Show me what they have created of the earth. Or have they any portion in the heavens ? Bring me a scr...

The Ray of Displacement

By: Harriet Prescott Spofford

IT would interest none but students should I recite the circumstances of the discovery. Prosecuting my usual researches, I seemed rather to have stumbled on this tremendous thing than to have evolved it from formulæ. Of course, you already know that all molecules, all atoms, are separated from each other by spaces perhaps as great, when compared relatively, as those which separate the members of the stellar universe. And when by my Y-ray I could so far increase these spa...

A May Evening

By: Nikolai Vasilievich Gogol

THERE were sounds of merriment in the village, and a chorus of song murmured, stream-like, through its single street. It was the hour when lads and lasses, after their hard day's work, meet in the mellow gloaming to express their feelings in melodies which, though glad, are never without a strain of sadness. The pensive eventide was dreamily embracing the blue heaven, and transforming every visible object into something vague, shadowy, and ghost-like. The brooding gloom ...
