Brockelmann Online consists of both original volumes
Geschichte der arabischen Litteratur (GAL) by Carl Brockelmann (1868-1956), as well as the three supplement volumes, including the indexes. Brockelmann’s
Geschichte der arabischen Litteratur offers bio-bibliographic information about works written in Arabic and their authors, with an emphasis on the classical period.
This originally multivolume reference work is divided in chronologically organized sections, which are subdivided by literary genre. Individual entries typically consist of a biographical section and a list of the author’s works in manuscript and print, with references to secondary literature. The full-text search makes the online version of Brockelmann much easier to use and consult this unique and valuable resource.
“Brockelmann” is an indispensible research tool for anyone working on the Islamic world in general and the Middle East in particular.
