The Suryoye of the Twelfth and Thirteenth Centuries: Bar Salibi, Bar Shakko, and Barhebraeus Herman Teule Abstract The present article studies some aspects of the literary output of three Syriac Orthodox authors, Dionysius bar Salibi, Jacob bar Shakko, and Gregory Barhebraeus, who are con- sidered the most important representatives of the period known as ‘the Syriac Renaissance’ (twelfth and thirteenth centuries). The focus of this study is on the growing importance of Arabic, the concern for the preservation of Syriac, considered as an important identity marker, the inﬂuence of Muslim cultural patterns and the West Syrian attitude to Islam as a religious system, and, ﬁnally, the emergence or rejection of ideas which tend to consider the Christologies of the East Syrians and Chalcedonians acceptable.
