This morning I received an email from Robert Bedrosian, the translator into English of a great number of Classical Armenian texts:
The English translation of Michael the Great’s Chronicle is now online. It may be freely copied and distributed.
This is incredibly good news!
The Chronicle of Michael the Syrian is the largest medieval chronicle. It was composed in Syriac, and has come down to us in a single Syriac manuscript, of which the beginning is lost; some abbreviated Arabic versions, and a condensed version in Armenian, which alone preserves the opening portions of the work.
