REGISTRATION: READ MORE ON THE MAIN SEMINAR PAGE.

In this seminar we read the Chronikon of Eusebius of Caesarea, originally written in Greek in the early fourth century, but only preserved in full in Armenian. The second part of the book, the Chronographic tables, was also translated into Latin by Jerome, and had significant impact on Western historiography. We read from the edition of J. B. Aucher (Venice 1818). Participants need only a basic knowledge of Armenian.
