Mikha’il Ibn Ya‘Qub ‘Ubayd Al-Misri

MIKHA’IL IBN YA‘QUB ‘UBAYD AL-MISRI

A copier of the manuscript Arabic 223, a collection of 142 pages, including the office of communion, evening and morning prayers, and the eucharistic liturgies attributed to CHRYSOSTOM, BASIL THE GREAT, and Gregory the Theologian. He completed it on 21 November 1774.

This Melchite from is quite different from the two Mikha’il ‘Ubayd mentioned by G. Graf in der christlichen arabischen literatur (Vol. 3, p. 351; and Vol. 3, p. 474), who were both Maronites, the first of whom lived in the mid- seventeenth century.
