Letters from Egypt

D. Gabriel



When Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, S.J. was twenty four Ye9rs old, having just finished three years of philosophy on the Isle of Jersey he was sent to teach science in the Jesuit school in Cairo. This book is a collection of sixty-eight letters to his parents and family written during this assignment and they cover three years of his regency before he continued his theological studies.
