by many to be the same as Idumaea,) who is supposed to
have lived in a very remote antiquity. One of the most
sublime books of the Old Testament bears his name and



gives an account of his life and virtues. By many it has
been thought that Job was an allegorical character ; but
there appears to be little reason for this supposition.
He is mentioned by the prophet Ezekiel, (xv. 16,) and
by Saint James, (v. n,) as a real person. Much con-
troversy has arisen about the age in which he lived, and
the author of the book ; but both these points remain
unsettled. This work was written in Hebrew, with a
mixture of Arabic.

General Oglethorpe and others, who ransomed him and
sent him to England in 1733. He was presented at
court, and attracted much attention. He produced an
interesting geographical account of his native country,
and wrote from memory, it is said, three copies of the
Koran. He returned to Bondoo about 1735.

John |Gr. 'ludwrif ; Lat. JOHAN'NES ; Fr. JEAN, zhflN ;
It GIOVANNI, jo-vin'nee] THE DIVINE, commonly called
SAINT JOHN THE EVANGELIST, with his brother James,
was among the first to become a disciple of our Saviour
when He commenced his ministry. John was made
one of the twelve apostles ; and his gentle, loving spirit
appears to have especially endeared him to his divine
Master. He spoke of himself as "the disciple whom
Jesus loved." He was with his Master in the garden of
Gethsemane. When our Saviour was nailed to the cross,
He commended his mother to the care of the beloved
disciple. After the resurrection and ascension of Jesus,
Saint John became one of the most prominent of the
propagators of the Christian religion. Syria and Asia
Minor were the principal scenes of his labours. We
are told by Tertullian and Saint Jerome that under the
reign of Domitian, by the order of a Roman proconsul,
he was immersed in a caldron of boiling oil, and that in
this terrible ordeal he was miraculously preserved, so
that he sustained not the slightest injury. After this
he was banished to the isle of Patmos, where he wrote
the Apocalypse, or Revelation. He also wrote three
Epistles, and the Gospel according to Saint John. He
is supposed to have died at Ephesus in 99 A.D., at the
age of ninety-tour.

In recent years there has been a sharp discussion as to
the authorship of Saint John's Gospel. Orthodox theolo-
gians in general, with many Unitarians, like Ezra Abbot
and E. H. Sears, assert that Saint John was its author.

Among all the disciples of Christ, John appears to
have most fully comprehended the character and spirit
of his divine Master. He first announced in clear and
concise terms the 'gr fiat central truth of Christianity,
that "God is love," a truth which, in his view, finds
its fullest proof in the great fact that God gave His
Son for the salvation of the world. (See John iii. 16,
17 ; and I. Epistle iv. 8, 9, 10.) The soul of "the be-
loved disciple" seems ever filled with the one theme.
Love, not fear, is to be the motive of obedience : " If ye
love me, keep my commandments." The love to which
he refers is not a mere sentiment, but a living power:
" This is the love of God, that we keep his command-
ments." (See John xiv. 15, 21, 23; I. Epistle iv.)

John I., surnamed ZIMIS'CES, |Gr. T(i/uaKf/(,] became
Emperor of the East in 969 A.D. He carried on a suc-
cessful war against the Rossi, or Russians, and quelled
serious disturbances in his eastern provinces. He died

John fixed his capital at Nicaea, in Bithynia. In 1235 he
besieged Constantinople, but was repulsed. He, how-
ever, reconquered all the other possessions belonging to
the Greek Empire which had been taken by the Latins.
John was a liberal patron of the useful arts, and did much
to promote the welfare of his subjects. Died in 1255-

John IV. (Las'caris) succeeded his father Theodore
as Emperor of the East in 1259, when he was aged but

of the Spanish sovereigns. In 1425 he ascended the
throne of Navarre, as the husband of Queen Blanche,
and three years later was appointed by his brother Al-
fonso V. to the government of Aragon. Blanche died
soon after, and in 1447 he married Joan Henriquez, of
the blood-royal of Castile, who became the mother of
Ferdinand the Catholic. He became King of Aragon in
1458. He carried on long and successful wars against
Henry IV. of Castile and Louis XI. of France. He also

learning, and his reign was distinguished for the revival
of literature in Castile. Died in 1454.

John (Hans, bans) I. OF DENMARK and II. OF
SWEDEN, son of Christian I., of the house of Oldenburg,
born in 1455, ascended the throne in 1481. About the
year 1500 the Swedes rebelled against him because he
had garrisoned the fortresses with Danish and German
troops. He was finally obliged to resign all claims to the
Swedish crown. Died in 1513.

John, King of England, surnamedSANSTERRE,(" Lack-
land,") the youngest son of Henry II. by his queen, Elea-
nor of Guienne, was born at Oxford in 1166. The king
at first created him Earl of Montague, in Normandy, and
in 1178 made him Lord of Ireland, In 1189 he married
the daughter and sole heiress of William, Earl of Glou-
cester. The same year he was a confederate in the
rebellion of his brother Richard. On the accession of
the latter to the throne he gave John several earldoms,
including about one-third of the kingdom. Soon after
Richard's departure on the crusade for the Holy Land,
John formed plans to obtain the crown on the event of
the king's death, in opposition to the rights of his nephew
Arthur, Duke of Bretagne, whom Richard had recognized
as his heir. When John was informed of his brother's
imprisonment in Germany, he immediately attempted to
usurp the throne, but was kept in check by the loyalty
of the nobles. On the king's return to England, in
1194, he deprived John of all his estates and compelled
him to make a humble submission. Richard died in
France in 1199, leaving his kingdom to John, who was
then with him. That prince hastened to establish his
authority in Normandy and his other dominions, and
was crowned at Westminster in May, 1199. In 1201 he
obtained a divorce from his wife, and married Isabella
of Angouleme. Philip Augustus of France espoused
.he cause of Arthur, who commenced hostilities against
John and gained several victories, but was subsequently
taken prisoner by his uncle and conveyed to Rouen.
Nothing further was heard from him ; but the probability
is that he was murdered. The war afterwards went
entirely against the King of England, who in the course
of two years lost the greater part of his continenta)



possessions. During this period he drew upon himself
the hostility of the Roman pontiff by insisting on his
right to appoint the Archbishop of Canterbury, that see
being then vacant. The pope excommunicated him and
laid the kingdom under an interdict, (1208.) John, how-
ever, paid no attention to the thunders of the Vatican,
but imprisoned or banished the bishops and clergy who
obeyed the pope's orders. Meanwhile he reduced Lle-
wellyn, a Welsh prince, to subjection, and suppressed a
rebellion in Ireland. Finally the pope, having formally
deposed him and absolved his subjects from their oaths
of allegiance, instigated the French king to invade Eng-
land. John, perceiving his danger, made an abject sub-
mission to the papal legate, and resigned to him the



kingdoms of England and Ireland, (1213.!
then forbidden to prosecute his enterprise.



Philip was
For a long



time John's tyranny had excited the hatred of his barons.
This was increased by Langton, Archbishop of Canter-
bury, who, presenting them with the charter of Henry I.,
exhorted them to obtain the' liberties therein granted. A
numerous body of barons solemnly swore to regain their
rights or to levy an unceasing war on the king. King
John, being supported by the pope, scornfully refused *o
make any concessions to the barons, who raised a power-
ful force and marched to London, where the citizens
gladly received them. On the I5th of June, 1215, John
consented to grant all that they required, and signed at
Runnymede the famous Magna Charta. Scarcely had
he done this before he induced the pope to absolve him
from these obligations and to excommunicate several
of his opponents. He also brought into England large
bodies of foreign troops, and gained several victories
over the barons. The latter then chose Louis, Dauphin
of France, as their king. This prince landed at Sand-
wich in May, 1216. John would probably have been
successful, (for dissensions were already breaking out in
the camp of Louis,) had he not been carried off by a
fever in October of that year. John has left one of the
darkest names in the history of the English kings. He
was extremely cruel, fickle, and licentious, without a
redeeming virtue. He had, by his queen Isabella, five
children, the eldest of whom succeeded him as Henry
III. The second, Richard, was elected King of the
Romans in 1257.

John (Jean) H., surnamed LE BON, ascended the
throne of France upon the death of his father, Philip
of Valois, in 1350. Charles, King of Navarre, having ac-
cepted an invitation to meet John at Rouen, was there
imprisoned, and several of his lords put to death. The
people of Navarre applied to England for assistance, and
Edward the Black Prince invaded France at the head of an
army. John marched against him with 60,000 men, was
defeated and made prisoner at the battle of Poitiers, fought
in 1356, and conducted to London, where he was received
with great honour by Edward III. While he remained
in England a civil war broke out in France with the peas-
antry, known in history by the name of" La Jacquerie."
In this revolt the castles of the nobility were plundered
and burnt and the inmates massacred. These ravages
continued for two years, until the dauphin, assisted by
several powerful lords, defeated the peasants, putting
thousands of them to the sword. In 1360, peace having
been concluded between France and England, John re-
turned to his capital ; but, finding much opposition made
by the nobles to the conditions of the treaty, he again
visited England, to confer with King Edward. He wa
soon after taken ill, and died in London in 1364.

was born in 1357. On the death of his brother F-rdi-
nand, in 1385, he assumed the regal power in opposition
to the rights of Ferdinand's daughter Beatrix, who had
married John I., King of Castile. This led to a war with
Spain, in which the Portuguese monarch gained several
important victories and firmly established his power. He
subsequently carried on a successful war against the
Moors of Africa. During his reign the Portuguese com-
menced those maritime expeditions which soon after
rendered them so celebrated. Under the command of
his son, Prince Henry, they discovered Madeira, the
Canaries, the Azores, and several places on the western
coast of Africa. Died in 1433.
