THE EPOCH OF MOVSES KHORENATSI

By: Musheghyan A. V., Doctor of Sciences (Philology)

Yerevan, 2007, 410 pages.

Summary

The monograph is devoted to the life and the epoch of the founder of the Armenian historiography Movses Khorenatsi and his “History of Armenia”. To think that Movses Khorenatsi is an author of the 7th-9tb centuries means to remove him to a period and an environment which are much more incoherent to his Weltanschauung, geographical notions, political and religious perceptions, and unique language and style, than a number of more or less serious anachronisms, which are completely rejected in this book. Movses Khorenatsi is undoubtedly an author of the 5th century and his classical “History of Armenia” is a product of that exceptionally fateful period of the historical biography of the Armenian people.
