STUDIES IN SYRIAC LITERATURE

Posted by on Sep 12, 2012 in Library, Tribute to Dr. Matti Moosa | Comments Off on STUDIES IN SYRIAC LITERATURE

This study is restricted to the literature of the syrian orthodox Church of Antioch.

The systematic study of Syriac Literature and sciences and related subjects began in Europe at the close of the seventeenth century. Eastern writers, whether of early or recent periods, whether Syrians or not, did not concern themselves with the scholarly study of Syriac Literature until recently, when the Syrian Patriarch of Antioch, Mar Ignatius Aphram Barsoum, published his comprehensive work entitled al-Lu’Lu’ al-Manthur (The Unstrung Pearls), or, as he gives the title in French, Histoire des Sciences et de la Litterature Syriaqite, in 1943. This work was republished in 1956. An evaluation of this book will be given later.
