Chapter Summary

The characteristic features of Commentary on Aristotle's Analytics commentaries have recently been studied by scholars including also in Paris I. Hadot and Ph. Hoffmann. If the texts we are concerned with lie on the Alexandrian rather than the Athenian side of the Neoplatonic watershed, in a milieu where intellectual exchange between Christian and traditional philosophers appears at times to have flourished to the extent that it is on occasion difficult to state whether a work was composed by a Christian or a pagan author, many of the characteristics are common to both. David, i.e. the author in Greek whose philosophical works doubtless were translated some time later into Armenian,was himself in all likelihood (like a number of intellectual figures in late antiquity, e.g. Prohaeresius, some of Libanius' pupils) of Armenian origin.

Keywords: Armenian origin; Commentary on Aristotle's Analytics; David; Greek text; Neoplatonic watershed
