The Armenian Gospel of the Infancy is a sixth-century document, translated from an older Syriac version that no longer exists.

Patriotism and piety in Armenian Christianity : the early panegyrics on Saint Gregory by Abraham Terian( Book )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Armenian Christianity manifests a unique blend of patriotism and piety - given its ethnic character from the outset and the fact of its having survived the unfavorable currents of history. Beginning from the inception of Armenian letters at the turn of the fifth century, the author surveys that blend in ancient Armenian sources spanning a thousand years. He shows how the theme finds its fullest manifestation as a literary motif in the medieval panegyrics dedicated to St. Gregory the Illuminator, founder of the Armenian Church at the dawn of the fourth century. Of these, the panegyric by Hovhannes of Erzenka (a prolific author of the thirteenth century) exhibits all the characteristics of the motif in ancient Armenian literature. Consequently, his work receives ample coverage in this unique study, including a translation of the entire text with commentary. Annotated selections from the other panegyrics on St. Gregory complete the book, the second volume in the AVANT series devoted to the study of the Armenian Christian heritage."--Jacket

Magnalia Dei : Biblical history in epic verse by Grigor Magistros by Grigor Pahlawuni( Book )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Armenian and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Composed by Grigor Magistros, an 11th-century Armenian princely savant and friend of the Byzantine Emperor Constantine IX Monomachus (reigned 1042-55), the Magnalia Dei is a summation of the Bible in epic verse. Written on one of the author's visits to Constantinople, it resulted from an encounter there with a Moslem intellectual by the name of Manazi - none other than Abu Nasr al-Manazi, vizier and emissary of the Abbasid Caliphate, theologian and poet, who frequently visited Constantinople in quest of Greek scientific manuscripts. During their discussion on the Bible and the Qur'an, a stock Islamic argument emerged: that the Qur'an is superior to the Christian Scriptures on account of its beautiful, inimitable verse. The epic is Magistros's response
