The Scattered Pearls -A History of Syriac Literature and Science
The Scattered Pearls -A History of Syriac Literature and Sciences (2nd revised edition)

Translated into English by Matti Moosa.

This book is an extensive survey of Syriac literature. In his capacity as a Syriac clergyman, the author was able to extensively examine hundreds of Syriac manuscripts throughout the Middle East, many of which did not survive World War I. While most Western accounts of Syriac literature end around the thirteenth century, Barsoum covers almost 2000 years of Syriac literature up to the writers of the early twentieth century.

"The publication of an English translation of Patriarch Barsoum's al-Lu'lu' al-Manthur is a most welcome event, for this is a work which has long been recognized as an essential source of information for anyone with a serious interest in Syriac literature." - Sebastian P. Brock, University of Oxford.
