Khachik Harutyunyan, Two Scribes of XVII Century, Named Michael, Yerevan, «Nairi» publishing house, 2016, 272 pages and 16 insert pages

The book Two Scribes of XVII Century, Named Michael is published. The author is a Senior Researcher at Matenadaran Khachik Harutyunyan, PhD.
The book presents the manuscript activities of XVII century two scribes, both of them by the name Michael.
One of them, Michael of Tokat (Mik‘ayelT‘oxatec‘i, writing years 1606-1658),due to the jalalids’ invasions, left his birthplace Evdokia (Tokat) and moved to Constantinople, the capital of the Ottoman Empire, where, since 1606, had copied numerous manuscripts. 33 of those manuscripts are currently kept in different libraries of the world, museums and private collections and another four manuscripts are only mentioned in different sources.
The other scribe is Michael, son of Bargham, who worked in Sebastia and Evdokia in the second half of the XVII century. He also was distinguished by his productive activities of copy and miniature art; his 29 manuscripts are currently stored in different places.
By these two scribes, on the whole, over sixty manuscripts are known to us.The book thoroughly presents the manuscript activities of Michaels, their linguistic features, as well as the history of manuscripts from the scriptoria of manuscripts till the current collection. The manuscript heritage of the authors is represented in four subsections:
a. history of the manuscript,
b. bibliography of the manuscripts under review,
c. path of the manuscript,
d. records of the writing period.
The study is designed for the manuscript experts, philologists, art historians and those who are interested in the history of Armenian manuscripts.

The book is published by co-financing of the Youth Foundation of Armenia within the framework of the Young Scientists Support Program implemented under the auspices of the President of the Republic of Armenia and the “JTI ARMENIA” CJSC.
