First ever …

 Uncovering Unknown Masterpieces of Armenia’s First Great Mystic Poet | Armenian Weekly. (Hat tip, Rus Bowden.)

Terian’s “groundbreaking” and “magnificent” new book, The Festal Works of St. Gregory of Narek(461 pages, the Liturgical Press, Minnesota, 2016) is the first translation (embellished with 54 pages of introduction and an array of explanatory notes) in any language of the surviving corpus of Naregatsi’s festal works. Terian’s mellifluous English and his mastery of Grapar have made this onerous task a joy and a celebration.
