Fr. Maximilian Ryllo, S.J. (d.c.1851), the Pro-Vicar Apostolic of Central Africa, and Polish Jesuit. Ryllo left Cairo in 1847 in the company of Ignatius Knoblecher and four other missionaries, and arrived at Khartoum in 1828. They established a school for young Africans whom they had purchased in the slave-market and who subsequently assisted him on their missions.
