الصفحة 157 - God, became perfect man, with spirit, soul and body, one Person, one attribute, and one United Nature; God became man without change and without variation. * * * As there is no beginning of his Divinity, so there is no end of his Humanity, (for Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, to-day and forever). We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ dwelt upon the earth; after thirty years he came to baptism; the Father testified from above, "This is my Beloved Son...
الصفحة 90 - ... few words. They have laid waste the country; cut down the trees; pulled down the houses; overthrown the sacred edifices of the natives, with all their public buildings; destroyed the public aqueducts; robbed the inhabitants; insulted the Tartars in their acts of public worship; torn up from the tombs the bodies of their ancestors, casting their...
الصفحة 98 - Feodosia*, wilh whom we lodged at Balaclava, not only received me, but attended me with all the solicitude of a Samaritan. We arrived by moonlight ; his house was beautifully situated upon a rock near the harbour. The variety of different nations which are found in the Crimea, each living as if in a country of its own, practising its peculiar customs, and preserving its religious rites, is one of the circumstances which renders the peninsula interesting to a stranger.

الصفحة 98 - ... circumstances which renders the peninsula interesting to a stranger. At Baktcheserai, Tartars and Turks ; upon the rocks above them, a colony of Karaite Jews; at Balaclava, a horde of Greeks; an army of Russians at Akmetchet ; in other towns, Anatolians and Armenians ; in the steppes, Nagays, Gipsies, and Calmucks ; so that in a very small district of territory, as in a menagerie, very opposite specimens of living curiosities are singularly contrasted.
الصفحة 141 - Another question, transcendent in interest, is proposed to the powers of Europe : Shall Turkey continue an independent kingdom ? It is clear that she can no longer intrench herself behind the barricade which Mohammedanism erects against the march of intelligence and improvement ; she can no longer insult the rest of Europe by an assumption of superiority in inverse ratio to her claim ; but if she will consent to remodel her institutions, to receive the impress of European civilization, and to admit...
الصفحة 141 - ... to fall into the arms that first opened to receive her; alternately sought and rejected by each. But from the inauspicious day in which she crouched under the wing of the Russian eagle, her doom was sealed ; the crescent then set to rise no more above the political horizon ; and the old Moslim empire of the Ottomans, as established on the principles of the Koran, was at an end. The subject for consideration is not now whether the existence of that can be prolonged. It has already ceased to be....
الصفحة 157 - May these (the bread and wine) be for justification, propitiation, and remission of sins, to all of us who draw near!
الصفحة 141 - European civilization, and to admit into her dying embers a new principle of political life, her nationality may yet be prolonged. France and England seem conscious of this truth ; and, if their policy be sound, they will exert their influence to regenerate her. Russia is equally aware of it, and hence she strives to retain both government and institutions in a state of inefficiency and decay. The drama is drawing to a close. The denouement is the fate of Turkey...
الصفحة 157 - ... the Orthodox Greek Church has supplanted all other forms of divine service. The Armenians are by the Greek and Latin Churches esteemed heretics, because they do not clearly distinguish in their Credo between the Divine and the human natures of Christ. The following is the clause of their creed : " We believe that one of the three Persons, God the Word, was begotten of His Father before all worlds : that in time He descended into the mother of God, the Virgin Mary ; that He took from her blood...
الصفحة 90 - ... the public aqueducts ; robbed the inhabitants ; insulted the Tartars in their acts of public worship; torn up from the tombs the bodies of their ancestors, casting their relics upon dunghills, and feeding swine out of their coffins; annihilated all the monuments of antiquity...
