The Armenians' experience with written Armenian literature begins with the translation of the Bible and the Greek and Syriac Fathers, an enterprise that took place immediately after the invention of the Armenian alphabet at the beginning of the 5th century. This lecture deals with the ancient Armenian translations of the corpus Chrysostomicum, presents the state of the art, and looks for possible paths for future research.
