The Passion of St. Shushanik is now on line. 

http://rbedrosian.com/smam.html

St. Shushanik is an amazing saint.  She was an Armenian princess, the daughter of St. Vartan Mamigonian.  She was married off to a Georgian nobleman, who later converted to paganism, and who tortured and imprisoned St. Shushanik when she refused to convert to paganism with him.  After seven years of torture and imprisonment, she died a martyr.

Her story is truly heroic.  I'm so glad they put this on line.  This is a translation from some ancient Armenian manuscripts, done by an Armenian priest.  I have the book and read it a while back.  It's very inspiring.
