are a modern Mohammedan sect who resemble, in some degree, the ancient Greek stoics. Their faith and practice seems to be a confused mixture of Mohammedanism, Christianity, and Judaism. They pray at funerals for the souls of the departed, calling upon the dead to remember that "there is but one God only." They read the Bible in the Sclavonic tongue, and the Koran in the Arabic. They love Christians, and protect them from insults on the part of other Mohammedans. They believe that Mohammed is the Paraclete or Comforter. They hate images and the sign of the cross, and practice circumcision, claiming in this to follow the example of Christ.
