This book is essential reading for anyone interested in the Armenian church and church history.Features: Introductory material on the text s history, manuscript traditions, and theological importance Translation of the Armenian text and commentary Bibliography covering the Armenian, Greek, Syriac, and Arabic texts as well as secondary sources
