Thus, Antonio Giggei, one of the " Oblates of Mary," taught Persian in a missionary college, at Milan, and, at a later period, taught Arabic in Florence. Giggei's Thesaurus Lingua Arabicae is still much esteemed. He wrote besides, a Grammar of Chaldee and of Rabbinical Hebrew, which is still preserved in manuscript in the Ambrosian Library at Milan; and his translation of a Rabbinical commentary on the Proverbs of Solomon, published at Milan in 1620, is an evidence of his familiarity, not only with Biblical Hebrew, but with the language of the Talmud in all its successive phases.
