Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Fr Emmanuel (known as Manuel or Manwel) Magri, S.J. (27 February 1851 in Valletta - 29 March 1907 in Sfax) was a Maltese ethnographer, archaeologist and writer. Magri gave a significant contribution as a scholar through his collection of Maltese folk tales and lore. Working at the end of the 19th and the turn of the 20th centuries, Magri's important work saved for posterity ethnographic material which would have otherwise been lost through modernisation and more widespread education. Fr Magri was also one of Malta's pioneers in archaeology. He was a member of the first Committee of Management of the Museum of Malta alongside Antonio Annetto Caruana, N. Tagliaferro and Temi Zammit. Fr Magri was entrusted with the excavation of the Hypogeum of Ħal-Saflieni, a Megalithic Temple in Xewkija (Gozo), and a number of other sites in Malta and Gozo. Born on 27 February 1851 in Valletta (Malta), Magri joined the Society of Jesus, in 1871. He was ordained priest in 1881 in Tortosa (Spain), and made the solemn profession of the last vows on 15 August 1890, in Istanbul (Turkey). As a Jesuit, Magri taught in a number of Jesuit College in Malta, and Turkey.
