Abstract :
This edition with annotated translation of all surviving letters between Claudius Salmasius and Christianus Ravius illuminates the role of correspondence in the practice of scholarship in the 17th century, particularly as it relates to unpublished manuscripts. It also provides significant information about the character and career of Ravius, whose extensive travels in Europe and the East brought him into contact with many prominent members of the Republic of Letters, amply documented in his correspondence and his numerous published works on Arabic, Hebrew and chronological studies.
