Carl Brockelmann (1868 1956) was a German Semiticist and the foremost orientalist of his generation. He was a professor at the universities in Breslau, Berlin and, from 1903, Knigsberg. He is best known for his multi-volume Geschichte der arabischen Litteratur (History of Arabic Literature) which included all writers in Arabic to 1937, and remains the fundamental reference volume for all Arabic literature. Brockelmann s work in Iranian studies is interwoven through his entire output. In Geschichte der arabischen Litteratur (5 vols., 2nd ed., 1937-49) he listed, described, and characterized thousands of Persian scholars and their works in Arabic as well as occasionally also in Persian and Turkish.
