Abstract: 

Barthelemy d'Herbelot de Molainville was a French Orientalist. He had a great impact on the development of Orientalism in France and also he was the author of “BibliothEque Orientale = Oriental Library” which was, for a while, the only reference book for western orientalists. However, it was influenced by some political events such as the Ottomans attack to Europe. The author was related to the courts of Florence and Paris and also supported by the politicians like Jean- Baptiste Colbert. He was also teaching in Royal College (later college de France).So, the book was written with superficial approaches and political aims. Despite the important position of Herbelot in oriental studies and related fields, today, his character and book Oriental Library is not well known for the Orientalists and especially for Iranian studies researchers. Therefore, this paper tries to reflect a clear picture of his character and position in Orientalism. Giving a short biography, short description of his life, the way of writing Oriental Library, the methods and approaches of its author and the influence of the book on western scholars and Orientalists will be discussed in the present paper.
