MS. Arm. e. 15
Nerses IV's Commentary on Matthew, etc., 17th cent.
This commentary, being mostly an abridged compilation of John Chrysostom, is divided like its original in the Armenian translation, into four books, and curiously the titles of theses division in this MS bear the name, not of John of Erzenka, but of St. John Chrysostom.
Contains: On Gluttony; On Fornication; On Avarice; On Sadness; On Wrath; on Melancholy; On Vainglory; On Pride. It ends with a memorial of the author, telling that he has finished 'this compendium in the inner hermitage (անապատ) of Tantzapharakh' (Տանծափարախ) in Siunik, East Armenia, in 1393.
It deals with some quesions per saltum, beginning from the creation of man, and extending as far as the New Testament. All in form of question and answer.
I.e. the Monastic Rules of St. Basil.
