THE CLASSICAL REVIEW of it has been direct and verbal; but what is more impressive is the correspondence of method and outlook among thinkers who were at least trying to be independent and to start from first principles, such as the anthropological sociologists and the economists. Especially interesting is the discussion of freedom, where the Christian view of the importance of the individual personality intervenes to modify the demands made by the ancient State on the hVes and conduct of its members, demands comparable to those of Mussolini or Hitler; and also to widen the range of persons with personal liberty within the State, by the principle of the Equality of Man. It is useful, too, to have in full the evidence for Greek belief in progress and development from Xenophanes onwards, and in the influence of geographical and economical factors on it. naissance Latin Language and Literature, Vol. XXI.) Pp. xxvi+356. Washington: Catholic University of America Press, 1946. Paper. THE texts on which this study is based are those printed in Plummer's Vitae Sanctorum Hiberniae; its purpose, in the words of the preface, is 'to investigate the syntax of the Vitae systematically and to bring the syntactical phenomena of the Vitae into historical relation with the syntax of Classical, Silver, and Late Latin writers. An attempt has also been made to investigate and present the influence of Old Irish syntax on the Latin syntax of the Vitae. The term Old Irish is used here in a broad sense, so as to include both Old and Middle Irish.' Other terms also have apparently been used in a broad sense. The systematic investigation consists in arranging the material under the headings which appear in J. L. MYRES.

The statement (p. from the neighbourhood of 1500 B.C.
