Jurji Zaydan was born into a poor Greek Orthodox family in Beirut and, through self-education, obtained entry to the Syrian Protestant College in 1881. After a year in the medical school, he participated in a student strike and was expelled. As did many of his contemporaries, he went to Cairo, where he embarked on a career as a journalist, publisher, novelist, scholar, and pro-nationalist intellectual.

He was a major contributor to Arab literature. During the thirty years of his life in Cairo, he produced twenty-one historical novels dealing with Arab history; a five-volume history of Islamic civilization (Tarikh al-Tamaddun alIslami, Cairo, 1901 - 1906); a four-volume history of Arabic literature (Tarikh Adab al-Lugha al-Arabiyya, Cairo, 1910 - 1913); and a dozen other books on history, language, and literature. In 1892, he founded the magazine al-Hilal, which he authored, published, and distributed for the next twenty-two years practically single-handedly.

With al-Muqtataf, it became the most important forum of the Arab Nahda (Renaissance) for the discussion of history, nationalism, secularism, modern sciences, and political institutions. In addition, Zaydan was also the author of the first autobiography in Arabic, Mudhakkirat Jurji Zaydan.
