Gregory Bar Hebraeus, also known as Abul-Faraj bin Harun al-Malati, is a prominent figure in the history of Syriac Christianity. He was a prolific writer and translator, and his extant writings provide some of the most important historical sources for the Syriac and Arabic Christian traditions. While he is most well known for his historical writings, Gregory also produced a grammar of the Syriac language. Gregory's grammar was not the first Syriac grammar ever produced, but it was by far the most comprehensive and thorough. The presentation of concepts in this grammar also influenced later Syriac grammars, and despite the production of many more Syriac grammars since then, Gregory's volume is still useful today as a helpful reference work. The edited text of the work is presented in a Serto script, and it includes Latin chapter titles at the head of each page and parenthetical Scripture references when appropriate.
