Les Calligraphes et les Miniaturistes de l’Orient Musulman is a highly regarded exploration of the Islamic art of calligraphy. Compiled by the noted Orientalist Clément Huart, this study begins with an introduction to the tools of the calligrapher’s trade, including details about the type of paper, how it is ruled, the writing implements and the use of colors. Turning to Islamic calligraphy, he demonstrates techniques and even playful examples of calligraphy. This section is fully illustrated, demonstrating to the reader the unique characteristics of each letter and how they are used as art. The main body of the work, however, is dedicated to the exploration of various schools of the art form throughout history. For readers interested in an introduction to what had grown into its own art-form in the context of Islam, this book will not disappoint.

Clément Imbault-Huart (1854-1926) was a highly regarded Orientalist. He studied at École des Langues Orientales Vivantes and became a diplomat in Damascus and Constantinople. In Paris he served as Secretary-Interpreter for Oriental Languages in the French government and as a professor at École des Langues Orientales in Paris.

Studies in Biblical Philology and Lexicography

Edited by Daniel King
ISBN: 978-1-4632-4035-6
This volume offers papers that emerged from the meeting of the International Syriac Language Project (ISLP) which took place at Stellenbosch University, South Africa, in September 2016, and at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, in August 2017. The ISLP invites research not only into Syriac, but extends its range to all ancient language lexicography. Hence its proceedings enrich the whole field of Syriac, Hebrew, and Greek lexicography. The ISLP especially encourages research into the interfaces between these languages, and hence the current volume contains a number of papers on translation equivalence: Hebrew-Greek, Hebrew-Syriac, and Greek-Syriac. Other philologically focused pieces explore matters relating to textual and manuscript traditions. All of these are preceded in the present volume by an extensive review of the production and achievements of the ISLP to date.
