Quarta di copertina

IN the winter of 1905-6 Professor Flinders Petrie undertook the examination of the Egyptian remains in Sinai. After working at Wadi Maghara he removed into the Wadi Umm Agraf to copy the inscriptions and excavate the temple ruins at Serabit. His work is described in Researches in Sinai, and the inscriptions are in course of publication by the Egypt Exploration Fund. Among the workers at Serabit was myself. I had long been interested in the hermit life of the peninsula and in the growing belief that the Gebe] Musa was not the Mountain of the Law. The excavations at Serabit and the non-egyptian character of the ancient hill sanctuary supplied new material for reflection.

The outcome is this little history which will I trust, appeal to those who take an interest in the reconstruc tion of the past and in the successive stages of. Religious.
