Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about the workshop held in June 2007 at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem with funding provided by the Center for Literary Studies of the Hebrew University and entitled "After the Apocalypse: The Nachleben of Apocalyptic Literature in the Armenian Tradition". It contains 17 essays that concern the development of the tradition until the eleventh century. The chapter begins with two essays on the Jewish apocalyptic literature and its legacy in Armenian. It concentrates on two visions of Armenian patriarchs that appear early in Armenian literature, namely, the visions of the St. Grigor Lusaworič' and of his descendant, St. Sahak the Great. The chapter concludes with an essay by Z. Aleksidze that presents the Georgian reception of both visions. It reflects on the mystical visions of the tenth-century Armenian saint, Grigor Narekac'i, by H. Tamrazyan.
