Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter presents an overview of the book that is concerned with a text known as Letter of Love and Concord between the Great Emperor Constantine and the Holy Pope Sylvester and Trdat, King of the Armenians, and Holy Gregory, the Illuminator of the Armenians. This Letter was composed in the Armenian Cilician milieu, sometime in the last decade of the twelfth century. It has traditionally been repudiated as a latinophile falsification, not necessarily worthy of being examined too thoroughly. The purpose of the book study is to present a revised diplomatic edition of this text based on an initial full collation of 54 mss and a sample collation of 9 mss, as well as to provide a historical introduction, textual comments and to propose a likely date for its composition.
