David the Invincible, Commentary on Aristotle's Prior by Aram Topchyan

By Aram Topchyan

David the Invincible’s (6th century advert) statement on Aristotle's past Analytics survives in simple terms in an outdated Armenian translation from Greek. Its severe version with a Russian translation (1967) was once in accordance with the editio princeps of Venice (1833) and 5 manuscripts of the Matenadaran (Institute of old Manuscripts, Erevan). This version comprises the textual content of 1967, revised via cautious rechecking of an analogous 5 manuscripts and the editio princeps, in addition to at the foundation of twenty-three different manuscripts. The booklet comprises the 1st English translation of the paintings, textual parallels with different commentaries on Aristotle, trilingual (Armenian, Greek, English) glossaries and different fabric important to experts. The creation, between different matters, discusses the disputable problems with authorship and the translator.

Sample text

In a few cases, A—M contains readings, otherwise unattested, which seem to be the correct ones. , all the other manuscripts (as well as the Venice and Erevan editions) read: Որպէս յորժամ ոք102 անտառահարութեան մասն ասիցէ զնաւակառու98 With one exception: O—M is copied either directly from Q—M or from another manuscript entirely identical with the latter. 99 C—M (c) and V—M (e) are in many passages identical. 100 The one-page γ—M, too, probably belongs to this subgroup: in addition to textual affinity, it, like J—M and W—M, has scholia in the margins (such as: J—M մարդոյ կերպէն ասես թէ մարդ է [“from the man’s shape you may say that it is a man”]—γ—M կերպին անունն ասեմք մարդ է [“we say that the name of the shape is man”]).

In order that we should not acquire false knowledge and should do nothing bad. Now, the present treatise on syllogism in general is also useful for finding one thing with the help of another”): the underlined part is omitted. . , X—M, Y—M and α—M read զօրութեանց (“powers”) instead of դրութեանց (“imposition”: literally, “impositions”) in the phrase յաղագս երկրորդ դրութեանց պարզ ձայնից (“about the second imposition of simple spoken sounds”).
