The History of Vartan and the Armenian War (Volume 1) by Yeghishe is one of the three gems of the Golden Age of Armenian literature, and marks the next step of Sophene’s Dual Language Series. In this series, we aim to make the most important works of ancient Armenian literature accessible to the broadest possible audience by placing the original Armenian text on the left-hand side and the corresponding English translation on the right-hand side.

The History of Vartan and the Armenian War is one of the masterpieces of Armenian literature and a major source for the Battle of Avarayr, its antecedents and aftermath. The History covers the thirty-five year period from 428 to 464 AD in seven chapters. Volume 1 contains the first four chapters of the work, and covers the period from the fall of the Arsacid dynasty of Armenia (428 AD) to the antecedents of the Battle of Avarayr (450/451 AD).
