Geschichte der arabischen Litteratur

Geschichte der arabischen Litteratur (GAL) (History of Arabic literature) is a reference work produced by the German scholar Carl Brockelmann. The work is considered a classic of Orientalist scholarship and it remains a fundamental reference volume for all Arabic literature.[1]

The first edition of the work was first published in two volumes (1898–1902), and aimed to give a framework which divided Arabic literature into periods and subjects.[2]. However, Brockelmann later wrote a series of three Supplementbände ('supplement volumes') that vastly expanded the original work and then revised the original volumes, so the final work comprised the following:

  • Brockelmann, Carl (1943). Geschichte der arabischen Litteratur. Band I (2. den Supplementbänden angepasste Auflage ed.). Leiden: Brill.
  • Brockelmann, Carl (1949). Geschichte der arabischen Litteratur. Band II (2. den Supplementbänden angepasste Auflage ed.). Leiden: Brill.
  • Brockelmann, Carl (1937). Geschichte der arabischen Litteratur. Supplementband I (1. Auflage ed.). Leiden: Brill.
  • Brockelmann, Carl (1937). Geschichte der arabischen Litteratur. Supplementband II (1. Auflage ed.). Leiden: Brill.
  • Brockelmann, Carl (1932). Geschichte der arabischen Litteratur. Supplementband III (1. Auflage ed.). Leiden: Brill.

Between 2016 and 2018, GAL was published by Brill in an updated English translation as History of the Arabic Written Tradition.[3]
