The Bibliotheca Malabarica is an annotated catalogue of Tamil manuscripts accumulated via the missionary Bartholomäus Ziegenbalg in the course of his first years in India (1706–1708). The 3rd part of this catalogue, which include 119 entries protecting works of Hindu and Jaina provenance, presents a desirable perception into Tamil literary works in huge movement at the eve of colonialism. The advent assesses the nature of Ziegenbalg’s library within the context of the resources from which he bought manuscripts. Will Sweetman’s translation is then augmented via annotations which determine the works and touch upon Ziegenbalg’s view of them. It identifies for the 1st time one textual content — the Tirikāla cakkaram — which was once formative for Ziegenbalg’s view of Hinduism from his earliest letters from India to his magnum opus, the Genealogia der malabarischen Götter (1713). A concluding bankruptcy considers different Tamil works pointed out in Ziegenbalg’s writings after 1708.
