Workshop "Studying God's Languages - Scholars of Hebrew and Arabic in Early Modern Europe" (The Warburg Institute, London, 29 May 2015)

Posted: 19.11.2014

This one-day workshop is organised by Joanna Weinberg (Oxford) and  Jan Loop (Kent, The Warburg Institute) and will be held on 29 May 2015. The workshop will look at the two faces of scholars of Hebrew and Arabic, trying to examine how and if their approaches to the two languages differ. Our speakers will look at the Arabist and Hebraist works of selected early modern orientalists like Thomas Erpenius, Edward Pococke, Guillaume Postel, and Johann David Michaelis.
