Yovhannes Drasxanakertc’i was a tenth century Armenian historian and Yovhannes’ position of pre-eminence provided an unmatched vantage point from which to observe and record the events recounted in the “History”. The present volume is a translation and commentary on chapters XXIV-LXVII of the import primary source. In addition to the translation, Maskoudian provides an extensive introduction to the historical and literary context of the “History”, an extensive bibliography, and a number of detailed indexes.
