Here is a fully annotated translation of an Armenian literary classic, the first made from the critical Armenian text. The sixth-century History of Vardan and the Armenian War describes a revolt of Armenians against the shah of Sasanian Iran in 450-451 in protest against the persecution of Christianity. Elish uses this occasion to express in more general terms his attitude as a Christian Armenian to the problems of cultural survival and patriotism in a hostile environment.

His history profoundly influenced Armenian writers from classical times to the present- its hero, Vardan, remains the ideal figure of a patriot even in Soviet Armenia. Mr. Thomsons introduction places the work in its historical context, while extensive notes identify people and places, explain allusions, and clarify details of the account.
