The articles here aim to develop and expand Professor Garsoian's earlier research on the bilateral influences on early-Christian Armenia, between Byzantium and the Sasanians. They continue the examination of the essentially Iranian 4th-7th century society and investigate its autocephalous Church. This maintained realtions with the Antiochene Christological school it shared with the Church of Persia longer than has generally been surmised, but simultaneously brought about an ideological transformation through which Christianity came to define the Armenian identity in the national tradition.
