THE OFFICIAL LIST OF THE CATHOLICOI OF “AGHUANK‘” OR OF THE SEE OF GANDZASAR
Manuscript No. 2561 of the Mashtots‘ Matenadaran in Erevan, dated 1664, is a copy of the “History of the Land of Aghuank‘” by Movsēs Kaghankatuats‘i. At a later date, an official list of the Catholicoi of “Aghuank‘” or of the See of Gandzasar was added to the manuscript (folia 262a–263a). The official list begins after the chapter “Names of the Patriarchs of Aghuank‘, Their Years and Accomplishments” i.e. with the 44th Catholicos, Markos, who succeeded Lord Movsēs in 993, and ends with those who held the office down to the middle of the 18th century.
