"Patriarch Stephan Douayhi (1670-1704) was born in Lebanon. He was sent to the Maronite College in Rome in 1641, There he studied several subjects in depth, notably philosophy and theology. Douayhi is until this day, the ultimate reference for any information relating to the Maronite Church. Of all his works, the present one, on Syriac model strophes and their meters, is of special interest, for as far as we are aware, such a piece of work has never been undertaken, either before or since his time."
