Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of modern author names relevant to the discussion of the Armenian apocalyptic tradition. Over the course of the past few decades, great strides have been made in the definition and study of the genre, "apocalypse". Beginning with the revision of the scholarly understanding of the biblical tradition brought about through a broader appreciation of the literary activity during the Second Temple period, new approaches to apocalyptic texts also sought to include a comparative perspective that recognized similar literary productions in non-biblical cultures. The Armenian literary tradition is quite large; it spans sixteen centuries and includes a wide variety of texts. The Armenian alphabet was invented at the beginning of the fifth century in order to facilitate the dissemination of the Bible and the teachings of Christianity.

Keywords: apocalyptic texts; Armenian Christianity; Armenian literary tradition; biblical tradition
