Justin Perkins

Justin Perkins (d.1869) was an American Presbyterian missionary and linguist. In September, 1833, he set sail for Persia as a missionary for the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions, and he went on to establish a missionary center and a printing press in Urmia that would continue for 35 years. He was widely recognized as a scholar of the Syriac language, and he published widely in the modern Syriac vernacular, including a translation of the New Testament (1846), the Old Testament (1852), and a referenced version of the Old Testament (1858). The first two of these contained the text in ancient and modern Syriac in parallel columns. His other works included books for regular and Sunday schools, hymnbooks, and translation of religious works.
