Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the primary information (i.e. the data and the macro and micro level research) concerning the Armenian Version of the Commentary on Aristotle's Categories ascribed to David the Invincible and to show that there is need for a new edition of this translation as well as of its Greek original. An integral part of this enterprise is the provision of a critical introduction and a textual commentary (mainly on the question of the textual relationships between Greek and Armenian texts), which together will serve as vehicles, at the macro and micro levels respectively, for the elucidation of issues concerning the significance of both texts for: a) ancient philosophy; b) Armenian literature; c) Hellenizing translations. The preliminary goal of the Hellenizing translations was the creation of handbooks on the sciences of the trivium (grammar, rhetoric and dialectic), which were necessary as a step for passing on to the quadrivium.

Keywords: ancient philosophy; Armenian literature; Commentary on Aristotle's Categories; David the Invincible; Hellenizing translations; textual commentary
