The surviving text of a Georgian martyrology, on Stephen Protomartyr, Peter and Paul, shows the influence of Armenian Christianity on Georgia, and reflects 6th century preaching against Judaism.
8.25 x 10.75
An edited transcript of a Georgian martyrology, with page-by-page French translation, from a manuscript copy found at Mount Sinai, collated with a manuscript from Tiflis. The original text was much longer (its table of contents is included), but these nine chapters contain the life of Saint Stephen, the first martyr, two homilies on him by the sixth-century Patriach Gregory of Antioch, and the lives of Saints Peter and Paul. They reveal much about Armenian influence on the Georgian church, and about the attitude that Christians held towards the Jews.
