Abstract :
This paper briefly portrays the life and work of a dedicated French Oriental scholar and consummate professional in Syriac studies, Jean-Baptiste Chabot, being a mere tribute upon the 75th anniversary of his death, on January 7, 2023. Studying his editions, translations and general publications, as well as reviewing the eulogies composed by his contemporary academics, the article reflects for today’s Syriac scholars upon the historical legacy of a genius of Oriental literature. Jean-Baptiste Chabot’s vast scientific expertise offered solutions to countless problems of Syriac philology and history, which are valid not only for the 20th century but also for our time.
