Syriac books and manuscripts at Duke

DUKE UNIVERSITY ANNOUNCES: Syriac Books and Manuscripts!
The Rubenstein Library is pleased to announce that we’ve digitized a wonderful publication written by Duke’s very own Maria Doerfler, Emanuel Fiano, and Lucas Van Rompay. The publication features erudite bibliographic descriptions of several Syriac manuscripts and books from the Rubenstein collections, accompanied by photographic illustrations. The work is an annotated catalog from an exhibition assembled for the Sixth North American Syriac Symposium, held at Duke University, 26-29 June 2011.

We’re grateful to the authors for allowing the book to be published on the Internet Archive! It will surely be a treasure for scholars worldwide.
