About-

A grammar, reader, and glossary

"Syriac, the language of the Christian Aramaeans, who had their headquarters in Edessa in northern Mesopotamia, is, in the first place, historically important, since it was through the medium of Syriac literature that Christian and philosophic learning passed to the Arabs and Persians, and even to India and China. In the second place, as a member of the North-Semitic group of languages, Syriac has a certain linguistic importance . . . [with regard to] the relation of Aramaic to Hebrew and Phoenician."
