Opening at the Close: History and Politics in Late-10th- Century Armenia

February 21 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

This paper explores the spectrum of Armenian historical writing from the second half of the 10th century, arguing for a remarkable diversity of approach and experience.

Dr Tim GreenwoodDr. Timothy W. Greenwood received his D.Phil from the University of Oxford, and is a Senior Lecturer in the School of History at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. His teaching interests extend across mediaeval Byzantium and the Near East (6th–11th centuries) with particular interest in the Caucasus and Sasanian Persia. His research is centered upon Armenian political, social and cultural history across the same period, analyzing and exploiting literary, epigraphic and architectural sources. A translation and commentary of an eleventh-century Armenian composition, the Tiezerakan Patmut‘iwn or Universal History by Step’anos Taronec’i, will be published in early 2017.
