Now of Greenland. Josephus, FLAVIUS (37-c. 100 A.D.), i. historian, was a man of high birth, and was sent on a mission to Rome in 63 A.D. ” When the Roman governor left Jerusalem, he accepted the management of , affairs in . Galilee, and defended Jotapata for fortyseven days o Vespasian. Titus interceded for him, and his life was spared; but he was not released from custody until Vespasian was declared emperor in 70 A.D. Thenceforward he attached himself to the imperial family, taking the name Flavius out of respect to them, and living in Rome to the end of his life. His chief works (both written in Greek) are The History of the Jewish War, which gives a brief sketch of Jewish affairs from 170 b.c. to his own day, and a full account of the conquest of Jerusalem; and The Jewish Antiquities, narrating the history of the Jews from the creation to 66 A.D.—the latter part treats more fully what is outlined in the other work; Josephus possesses a clear and pure o, and his descriptions are vivid. . His attitude to Christianity has been much discussed. In one passage, which by many critics is considered spurious, he speaks of esus as the ‘true Christ,’ and as more than man;' but it seems clear he was not a Christian. More probably he was a Pharisee in whom Greek learning and philosophy had inspired a certain indifference to dogma, and a general toleration of all creeds. The best editions are those of Niese 1887–95) and Naber (1888–96). ng. trans. by Shilleto (1889 See Drüner's Untersuchungen ilber Josephus (1897). Joshua ("Jesus,’ Acts 7:45), the son of Nun, according to the book called by his name (see next article), succeeded Moses as the leader of the Israelites, and completed the invasion of , Canaan. After crossing the Jordan from the east he reduced Jericho and (after a reverse) Ai, defeated a large number of native kings, and occupied their territory, afterwards subdividing the land among the tribes of Israel. This is not in accord with Judges 1–2, which represents the conquest as carried through by different aggregations. {; is said to have died at Mt. phraim at the age of one hundred and ten.

scribing the Israelite conquest of Canaan, is now regarded as the necessary supplement to the Pentateuch, and in critical works the six books are conjoined under the name of Hexateuch (q.v.). The book, was traditionally believed to have been written by Joshua himself, though Calvin abandoned the view. As a matter of fact, the same phenomena of composition as are noticed in Genesis reappear in Joshua, and the same writers . schools)—viz. J, E, D, P, to whom the various strata of the Pentateuch are attributed—are found here. The whole has been edited under Deuteronomic influence at a relatively late date. o have been raised as to the reliability of the narrative, and as to whether Joshua himself is a person or personification.

Josiah, king of Judah (c. 639– 608 B.C.), the son and successor of Amon, ascended the throne at the age of eight. The Scythian invasion in 630 was interpreted as a divine judgment upon the idolatry of the nation, and , shortly thereafter Josiah, assuming the regal authority, began his campaign of reform. While , the too was being renovated by public subscriptions, the book of the law (Deuteronomy) was discovered by the high priest Hilkiah, and this gave a startling . to the progress of the reforming movement. Idolatry was suppressed by drastic measures, the local sanctuaries were abolished, and the worship was centralized at Jerusalem. A period of peace and prosperity followed, which was broken when osiah attacked Pharaoh-nechoh while on a campaign against Assyria) at Megiddo, where he was defeated and slain. (See 2 Kings 22, 23 and histories of Israel.) Jósika, BARON MIKLós (1796– 1865), Hungarian novelist, was born at Torda in Transylvania, and wrote a series of romances historical and social, based on the model set by Sir Walter Scott. They are serious in intention, though enlivened with occasional touches of humor, and aim at a high moral standard. They achieved great popularity. Chief o; them are Abafi (1836), The Bohemians in Hunary, The Last % the Baithoris 1847). His complete works run to nearly a hundred volumes. Josquin, DEPR£s (1440–1521),

Jotun, a legendary being of N. European folklore. In the translations of the Scandinavian Eddas, where the jotuns, figure prominently, their name is usually rendered by “giant.” According to one view, they are purely mythical creations—nature-gods.

After his death Chateaubriand edited a selection of his Pensées, and a fuller, edition was published in 1842 by Paul de Raynal. This was followed by the improved editions of Arnaud Joubert (1850) and Louis de Raynal (1862). Joubert, PETRUs JACQBUS (1834–1900), Boer commandant, was born at Cango in Cape Colony; migrated when young to Natal, later to the Transvaal. He represented Wakkerstroom in the Volksraad from 1863 to 1875, when , he was elected chairman of the Assembly. He was for a time attorney-general of the rol. (1874). He worked with Kruger against the annexation of the Transvaal by Sir T. Shepstone in 1877. When the flag of independence was raised in December 1880, he was appointed one of the triumvirate to whom the government of the country was entrusted. . As commandant-general of the Boer forces he defeated the British at Majuba Hill on Feb. 28, 1881. Joubert , twice unsuccessfully sought the presidency in opposi; tion to Kruger—in 1893 and Jouett

in 1898. On the outbreak of the Boer war (1899–1902) Joubert was again commandant-general, . invested Ladysmith; but illhealth compelled him to return to Pretoria, where he died. Jouett, MATTHEw HARRIs (1788–1827), American artist, the son of a oo:: was born in Mercer co., Ky. He studied law, but found that his interest lay in the direction of art work. After service in the war of 1812, he devoted himself to the study of portrait and miniature painting taking a brief course under Gilbert Stuart. He lived at Lexington, Ky., where and in other parts of the South he painted many portraits of which the best known is that of Lafayette, ordered by the Kentucky legislature. Jouffroy, THéodore - SIMON 1796–1842), French philosopher, rn at Pontets (Jura); became (1833) professor of Greek , and Roman philosophy at the Collège de France. His varied studies were gradually concentrated upon the . y of the Scottish school, and in 1836 he published a translation of Reid's works with a biographical account of the Šoš philosopher... He also published Mélanges Philosophiques (1833; new ed. 1883), Cours de Dror, Naturel (1833– 42), and Cours d'Esthétique (1843). See Life in French by Tissot (1876). Jouffroy d'Abbans, CLAUDE

Joule, JAMES PREScott (1818– 89), English physicist, was born at Salford, and became a pupil of Dalton. His first work was on magnetism, particularly as to the magnetizability of iron by electric currents—a research which led to a definition of a Fo unit of current, and to is , discovery that the quantity of heat set free by the passage of a current through a conductor is proportional, to the square of the current. These investigations in their turn paved the way for Joule's great discovery in 1843 of the mechanical equivalent of heat, careful determinations of which, by various methods, occupied his attention during, the reater part of the rest of his ife. Joule was awarded the Royal (1852), and Copley (1860) medals of , the Royal Society. His Scientific, Papers were collected and published (1885–7). Jourdan, EAN BAPTISTE, Count (1762–1833), French military commander, born at Limoges. After service in America (under Count d'Estaing), he was placed at the head of the army of the north, and inflicted upon the Austrians a signal defeat at Wattignies, (1793). In another command he drove them across the Rhine (1794), and besieged Kastel and Mainz (1795). Crossing the Rhine again in 1796, he was defeated at Amberg and Würzburg. Once more, in the field in 1799, he suffered further defeats, owing to his o being immensely outnumbered by that of Austria. He defended himself in the Précis des Opérations de l'Armée du Danube sous les Ordres du Général Jourdan (1799). Napoleon entrusted him with the direction of affairs in Piedmont (1800). He was created a marshal in 1804, and in 1806 was appointed governor of Naples.

Commercialism had not yet absorbed the guiding power of the editorial page. During the moral agitation that resulted in the civil war, the editorial office was most comJoust

an order that existing conditions have made almost impossible. Since about 1875, the unprecedented increase of the means communication, by o telegraph and telephone has largely effaced the old local wercentres of journalism; while the business side of the profession, rigorously organized to compete for advertising, add to the subscribers' list, and sell to the general public, has less regard to ideal claims made in behalf of the press as a director of the public conscience. Some journals struggle against this commercializing tendency, while few will openly admit, that they are carried along with, it; but the eneral fact is indisputable. . It is none the less true that public opinion in this country is more independent and disgriminating than during the first half of the nineteenth century, more, likely to resist *}. o leadership; and doubtless that result is itself due, in large measure, to the educative power of journalism. In the more advanced European countries influences similar to those already noticed have long been at work, and with similar results. See NEwsPAPER. Joust. See TournameNT.

Jubilee, the fiftieth anniversary of any important public event, or the fiftieth year of any important institution. The sixtieth anniversary is termed the ‘diamond jubilee.' The word comes from the Hebrew ‘Year of #: which is described in the Holiness Code (Lev. 25, 8–55). As here instituted it recurred at intervals of seven sabbatical years (i.e. 7x7 years), was ushered in by the blowing of the yobel ‘ram’s horn,' and was celebrate with universal rejoicing. Agriculture was brought to a standstill, mortgaged property was restored to its hereditary owners, and slaves of Jewish birth were liberated. There is no evidence that such an institution was ever observed, and some of its provisions seem impracticable. The narrative is probably an elaboration of the law of the Sabbath (cf. the Sabbatical year, Lev. 25, 1-7). In the Roman Catholic Church a jubilee feast was instituted by oniface viii. in 1300, and was intended to recur with every new century thereafter; but the interyal was successively reduced by later popes to fifty, thirty-three, and twenty-five years. or the Year of Jubilee see the commentaries on Levitical and the Hebrew archaeologies; for the pope's ; Lea's History of Auricuar Confession, iii.

Jubilees, THE Book of, one of the "Öri festament Apocrypha, called also the Little Genesis. The former name is due to the fact that the book divides the whole stretch of time between the creation and the arrival of the Israelites in Canaan into fifty jubilees of forty-nine years each, and describes the various incidents in this period by reference to the particular sabbatic year and # ilee in which it occurred. he other name of the book arises from its being a recast of the narrative given in Genesis, though, while it only gives a selection of the events, its lengthy comments and Midrashic legends actually swell it beyond the compass of the canonical book. Besides attempting to fix the early chronology, more definitely, it seeks to explain the difficulties of the sacred narrative, and lays great emphasis upon religious seasons and observances. The complete book is extant only in an Ethiopic version (found by Dr. Krapff in Abyssinia, and translat by Dillmann in Ewald's Jahrbücher, 1851–3; original published by
