Abstract The British Library contains the world’s largest collection of extant Syriac manuscripts. Unfortunately, its principal catalog, William Wright’s Catalogue of Syriac Manuscripts in the British Museum Acquired since the Year 1838, does not include a page index. This has resulted in great frustration and loss of research time for those who have consulted the British Library holdings. The “Wright Decoder” provides the index we all wish William Wright had himself written. It is organized by sequential shelfmarks and provides the volume and page numbers in Wright’s catalog that corresponds to each Syriac manuscript.
