Digitized Manuscripts: Sortable Search

About This Table

This table allows you to search all collections of Syriac and Garshuni manuscripts that are freely available online by general keywords. It is also sortable by shelf-mark, language, and approximate date. If you would like to group manuscripts by select key terms (language, author, genre), see the faceted table here, and choose the key terms in the menu.

*The Approximate Date column is derived from the best available information for the manuscript. This is not asserted as a scholarly position on the dating of the manuscript. Instead, it is merely used here for the convenience of being able to sort all manuscripts by numerical date. The user should keep in mind that there may be considerable debate over the precise dating of the manuscript and should consult the manuscript repository and relevant scholarly literature for details.
