AGATHANGELOS

AGATHANGELOS Agatangelos 6th c.. Pseudonym of the author of a chronicle Patmowt˜iwn Hayoc˜ of the conversion of the Armenians by St. Gregory the Illuminator. The author claims to be the secretary of King Tiridates ca. 320 and an eye-witness of the events. The text is later, however ca. 490?, as its anachronisms and contradictions show. A rather old 6th c.? Greek translation was made from the original Armenian, on which depend various reworkings and shorter versions in Greek and the Eastern languages. Patrologia V, 601-602; G.
