 About the Book 

This edition of The History of Armenia comes complete with a Bieber Touch-or-Click Table of Contents, divided by each section, and the Bieber Image Collection, a myriad of beautiful colorful religious images.Moses of Chorene was an Armenian historian, and author of the History of Armenia.He is credited with the earliest known historiographical work on the history of Armenia, but was also a poet, or hymn writer, and a grammarian.The History of Armenia was written at the behest of Prince Sahak Bagratuni and has had an enormous impact on Armenian historiography and was used and quoted extensively by later medieval Armenian authors. Although other Armenians, such as Agatangeghos, had previously written histories on Armenia, Movses work holds particular significance because it contains unique material on the old oral traditions in Armenia before its conversion to Christianity and, more important, traces Armenian history from Movses day to its origins.He is considered to be the father of Armenian history (patmahayr), and is sometimes referred to as the Armenian Herodotus.Movses identified himself as a young disciple of Saint Mesrop and is recognized by the Armenian Apostolic Church as one of the Holy Translators, although many scholars, especially after the highly-influential 1978 publication of the English translation and commentary of his work, believe that he composed his work much later.You can buy other wonderful religious books from Bieber Publishing!Enjoy.
