Ignatii Iulianovich Krachkovskii (1883–1951) was a prominent Russian and Soviet Orientalist (with Belarusian roots) and renowned Qurʾān translator, who played a pivotal role in shaping the Soviet school of Arabic studies. His career unfolded in the Russian Empire, and he was connected with the European Orientalist networks, actively engaging with their scholarly works. Contrary to the archetype of the “armchair” scholar, Krachkovskii was also well-connected with the Arab world. Even though he lived through tumultuous eras, from the First World War and the Russian Revolution to the Second World War and the Stalinist regime, Krachkovskii’s scholarly vigour left a lasting mark on the study of Arab poetry, modern Arabic literature, and Arab geography. Additionally, Krachkovskii was one of the contributors to Brill’s Encyclopaedia of Islam, further solidifying his place in the annals of European academic history.
