About this Item

Title

  • The Festive Maronite.

Summary

  • This Maronite prayer book was copied in 1888 by the self-styled "wretched, lazy scribe" Yūsuf Dib. The text is partly in Syriac, partly in Garshuni (Arabic written in Syriac letters). Instead of rubrication-indicating titles and important words in red ink-purple ink is mostly used for this purpose. The manuscript provides a fine example of a carefully written and well-preserved text. The Maronite Church is an Eastern Catholic Church in communion with the Holy See in Rome. Centered in Lebanon, the church takes its name from Saint Marun (died 410), a Syrian monk whose followers built a monastery in his honor that became the nucleus of the Maronite Church.
