This chapter serves as a documentary supplement to Timothy Mitchell's description of the founding of European-style schools in Egypt, focusing on their use as centers of religious instruction and the detailed strategies incorporated by the school's administrators. It also argues that one needs to go beyond Mitchell's reading of Egyptian history in order to gain more understanding of the unique dynamic of these types of schools.
