    Indeed so. There is a wealth of Syriac, Coptic, Antiochian and Maronite scholarship written in Arabic, although personally I am most interested in the Coptic and Syriac scholarship, so if Sebastian Brock publishes a new translation, I am buying it. It can be a trail of tears, but it is softened by the historic scholarship of the Assemanis, a wealthy and powerful Maronite family whose scions either translated or paid for the translation of countless Maronite, Syriac Orthodox, and Assyrian manuscripts into Latin, which makes them much more accessible to us.
