The present volume is, with the exception of one document, devoted to the religious and ecclesiastical affairs of the Philippines-mainly in extracts from standard authorities on the religious history of the islands, combined in an appendix. Beginning with the laws which concern missionaries to the Philip pines (1585 we present accounts of the eccle siastical machinery of that colony, the status of the various religious orders, the missions conducted by them, and other valuable information -showing the religious condition of the islands at various times, from 1656 to 1899.
