Il carteggio in arabo di Simone Assemani una scelta di lettere dalla corrispondenza inedita dell'epistolario Moschini


This contribution is focused on the edition, and translation, of unpublished letters in Arabic, written by, translated by and sent to simone assemani (1752-1821), numismatist and orientalist. Seven documents have been selected for publication: the draft of a letter to O.G. Tychsen (1734-1815), the famous German numismatist; three drafts for cardinal Stefano Borgia, Secretary of Propaganda Fide; one letter by the head of a maronite convent; and two letters by a missionary, of Syrian origins, from Venice and Rome. The author aims at investigating the historical and cultural context, which this correspondence mirrors.
