Abstract

One of the main objects is the search of Arabic Calligraphy emergence due to the different presented theories about the real time of emergence. The orientalists had never reached to a clear opinion however they presented many different theories in that field. Among these theories is that the origin of  Arabic Calligraphy came from the Semitic development (Semitic languages family) such as the Nabatean writing or the Syriac  and other Semitic languages calligraphies that are close to the Arabic Language.

Through this paper, the Oriantalists studies about the Arabic Calligraphy emergence pre-Islam will be discussed during monuments exploration and discovering many different inscriptions belong to genders of Semitic languages that had transcribed pre-Islam including the Aramaic  inscriptions, and other derived Arabic calligraphies such as Nabatea, Palmeryne and the Syriac Calligraphies in addition to the southern Arabic Calligraphy that is written in Al-Musnad calligraphy. Regarding this variation in opinion about the Arabic Calligraphy emergence, this paper comes to clarify the nearest scientific opinion about the Arabic Calligraphy emergence, its development and Archeological roots.
