PREFACE.

THIS Index has been compiled from the Old and New
Testament and Apocrypha, the alterations in the Revised
Version being noted in their places; from the Memoirs and
Name Lists of the Survey of Western Palestine from that
;

of the
portion which is completed (as yet unpublished)
1
Memoirs and Name Lists of the Survey of Eastern
Palestine; from Smith s Bible Dictionary; from the list
drawn up by Sir George Grove for Clarke s Bible Atlas
(S.P.C.K.); and from Conder
s Handbook to the Bible
and Primer of Bible Geography/ with numerous references
to the Quarterly Statements.
The identifications adopted
are those that will be found on the new maps (to be issued
about the end of this year) of the Old and New Testament,
covering both sides of the Jordan,
and authorized by Colonel
Sir Charles Wilson and Major Conder, R.E.
The Index to the Old Testament Sites includes upwards
of 1,150 names of places in the Holy Land, Mesopotamia,
Edom, the Desert of Sinai, and Egypt; being, it is believed,
all those that are mentioned in the Old Testament and the
Apocrypha.
The Index to the New Testament Sites contains 162
names, with references to Josephus (Whiston s), in addition
to those in the New Testament. Of these names 144 arc
known, 10 uncertain, and 8 not identified.
The identifications suggested by Major Conder as due
to the Survey are marked with a star. ^

There are still 290 places mentioned in the Old Testament,


in the East of Jordan, the Desert and Western Palestine,
which remain to be identified. Reference is made in every
case to the number of the sheet of the large and small maps
on which the modern name will be found. Under the
heading Remarks, etc., will be found
fuller particulars of
the proposed site from the Memoirs of Western Palestine.
