Description

In 1905, the Jesuit scholar Ant�n Rabb�t discovered the writings of Elias al-M�sili in a Jacobite diocese in Aleppo, Syria. Al-M�sili, a seventeenth-century Arab and a priest of the Chaldean Church, traveled widely across colonial Spanish America, becoming the first person to visit the Americas from Baghdad. Rabb�t transcribed into Arabic and published those portions relating to al-M�sili's travels. Acclaimed Middle Eastern historian Farah is the first to make these writings available in English translation.
