Bogos Version of the Scriptures
Bogos Version Of The Scriptures.
Bogos is a language or dialect spoken by a tribe numbering about 20,000 souls, and dwelling at the northern apex ofthe table-land of Abyssinia. One third of the tribe are Roman Catholics, and the remainder are Mohammedans and Abyssinian Christians, but without churches or priests, and in neglect of all religion. The British and Foreign Bible Society undertook, in 1880, to print a small tentative edition of the Gospel of St. Mark for that tribe. The translation was made by professor Rheinish, an Egyptologist, from Dr. Krapf's Amharic Bible, by the assistance of Stefanos, a youth who was educated at Gondar, in Abyssinia. The translation is in the Abyssinian character. (B. P.)
