TEXTUAL COMMENTARY ON THE ARMENIAN VERSION OF IV EZRA
by Michael E. Stone
Prof. Michael E. Stone discusses the character of the Armenian version of IV Ezra, compares it with other recensions of the same work, and explains what considerations guided him in making determinations among manuscript readings. In an appendix, Stone also includes a collation and analysis of six hitherto unknown manuscripts of Armenian IV Ezra which came to light after the publication of his critical edition. The study is a welcome contribution to research into the vast and largely neglected corpus of Jewish/Christian pseudepigrapha that survives in Armenian translation.
