MS. Arm. e. 30
Apocrypha of the O.T., 13th cent.
A free compilation of the Bible, with some insertions. The history as it proceeds falls into two subdivisions (ff. 88 and 92(b)), both having the same strange title of Եւթն վահանգի (?). The first three folios (ff. 80-83) are in a later hand.
cf. Lord Curzon's Arm. MSS., no 1 (Bible), ff. 37(b)-44, published at Venice from a text somewhat different from our MS. French trans by A. Carrière, in the 'Nouv. Mél. orient.' (Paris, 1886), pp. 471-511. Eng. trans. by J. Issaverdenz in the 'Uncanonical Writings of the O.T., etc.' (Venice, 1901), pp. 92-162.
Defective at end, our copy contains only the Testaments of Simeon, Levi, Joseph, Benjamin, and Juda. The last three leaves are supplied by a later hand in bad notrgir. (Cf. Lord Curzon's Arm. MSS., no. 1, ff. 24-37. - Issaverdenz, l.c., pp. 351-479.).
