Moses of Chorene's Ecclesiastical History
« on: September 15, 2008, 11:21:53 PM »
Do any of the Armenians (or others) here have any information pertaining to the authorship of the Ecclesiastical History traditionally attributed to Moses of Chorene? I'm looking more for a defense of the traditional authorship, as I haven't been able to find one.

I've heard there was some doubt about his authorship, but I really don't know much about the matter.  Why are you interested?

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
