Asaad Shidiak





NARRATIVE OF THE CONVERSION, IMPRISONMENT, AND SUFFERINGS OF ASAAD SHIDIAK, A NATIVE OF PALESTINE, WHO HAS BEEN CONFINED FOR SEVERAL YEARS IN THE CONVENT OF MT. LEBANON.





The following narrative illustrates two points. 1st. The usefulness of

Christian Missions. 2d. The unchanging persecuting spirit of the papal

church. The subject of the following narrative has now been in

confinement about five years; during which time he has suffered almost

every indignity and vexation which the malice of his enemies could

impose upon him. Up to the present time, however, he has remained

steadfast in his adherence to the principles of the gospel. We give the

narrative of his trials and sufferings in the simple and affecting

language of the missionaries, which excited such powerful interest in

the bosoms of Christians, at the time of its first publication. The

principal facts are taken from the Missionary Herald published by the

American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions.
