Table of Contents


“For those learning classical Armenian, and now for readers of English, the Synaxarion can be very memorable for the sometimes bizarre and outlandish events it includes. These texts, as they are read and considered, will move the reader’s senses. They produce an effect that can stay with the reader—and that was almost certainly why these stories were penned in the first place and later collected together. I am glad to have Mathews’ translation of January available, as other readers will also be. We can look forward to the same for the other months.” —Dr. Adam Carter McCollum, Hill Museum & Manuscript Library
