Abstract :
In the 20th century the French National Library purchased new Arabic manuscripts of both Christian and Muslim provenance. As yet, most of them are not described in details, but we have only an Index published in 1987 by Sauvan, Balty-Guesdon, Tamari. Here one can find the main contents of the 19th century Arabic 6981 which is actually an important collection of the most famous Christian Arabic writers of the Middle Ages, as well as the witness of anonymous unknown works. The aim of this article is to provide a detailed description of this manuscript by paying special attention to it contents. Accordingly a full list with incipit and desinit of each treatise has been drawn up, without forgetting to present some codicological and palaeographic features of this neglected codex.
