Abstract:

Focusing upon the extraordinary circumstances of the production of the
editio princeps of the Syriac New Testament in 1555 and establishing
a reliable history of that edition, this book offers an new account of the
origin of Syriac studies in Europe and a fresh evaluation of Catholic
Orientalism in the sixteenth century. The reception of Syriac into the West
is shown to have been characterised, under the influence of Egidio da
Viterbo and Postel, by a Christian Kabbalistic world-view which also
determined the reception of other Oriental languages.
The companion volume The Kabbalistic Scholars of the Antwerp
Polyglot Bible exhibits the continuing influence of Christian
Kabbalism on later editions.
