Not illustrated. 1919 edition. Excerpt: ...feudal Europe, while their ruined castles still dominate the length of the country. I have one practical purpose in presenting this paper, without which I should not have imposed my topic upon you. As a Semitist and Orientalist in my studies I would take this opportunity to press upon you the point that Syria is a land for the Classicists as well as for the Semitists. We may in driving down the archaeological spade strike the original Semitic substratum, but as often possibly not. But, wherever the archaeologist goes, there are the remains of the Graeco-Roman civilization, rich spoils for you scholars. That Syrian province is part of your world, woven into its web and woof by the spirit of Greece and the strong hand of Rome. The garment has indeed been rent, but then it is only with fragments of the past that we students can ever deal. If I as a provincial make appeal for my Syria, do not be so provincial as to reject my plea. It was a Syrian provincial, a Jew of Tarsus but a Roman citizen, who made his appeal unto Caesar, and he got his hearing in Rome'. UNIVERSITY or PENNSYLVANIA.
