Notes

The collected works of Samuel Bochart (1599-1667), the influential biblical scholar who was the first in the West to quote from a number of Arabic sources. His primary publications are the Geographia Sacra (first published 1646), on Biblical geography, and the Hierozoicon (first published 1663), on Biblical zoology; both are rich in quotations and citations in Hebrew, Arabic, Syriac, Greek, and Ethiopic.
