Thomson surveyed Syriac literary influence on Armenian Christianity from the time of early missionary activity to the middle ages. Evidence suggests that Armenian Christians are greatly indebted to Syriac contributions on sainthood and theology, but 12th century Syrian Patriarch Michael’s Chronicle is the only significant historical writing in the cultural exchange. Political contexts affected translation activity, especially those tied to theological differences.
