4 Studia Biblica et Ecclesiastica. copy of a very much older ( perhaps contemporary) original. Unfortunately it is incomplete. The order of the incidents differs from that in other versions, and some things are omitted altogether. Other versions. Among other MSS. may be mentioned: 1. A copy of the Lives of the Georgian Saints, written by the Catholicos Arsen in the tenth century ( preserved in the St. Petersburg Academy of Sciences). Arsen tells us he used oral as well as written material. 2. The Shio Mghvime monasterys MS., written in 1733. 3. The Nathlismtzemeli ( Baptist) monasterys MS., 1713. These two last named are evidently taken from the same source, but the one is not copied from the other. 4. Queen Mariams MS. ( written 1636- 1646) of Karthlis Tzkhovreba ( the Georgian Chronicle), which was not among those edited by Vakhtang VI. 5. Karthlis Tzkhovreba, the great Georgian Chronicle, edited by King Vakhtang V I ( early eighteenth century), but collected long before his time. The text and French translation published by M. F. Brosset, St. Petersburg Academy of Sciences. The MS. Conversion of Georgia. The MS. Moktzevai Karthlisai ( infra, pp. 61- 64) gives the legend of St. Nino in a dry, brief manner, and carries the history down to the ninth century; but the oldest part does not seem to be later than the seventh century. It cannot be looked upon as the root from which other versions have sprung, but only as part of a compilation of annals from pre- existing material. Agreement of the Versions. It will be found that the different versions, through about a thousand years, show no essential disagreement, and they are supported by the inde-pendent authority of Rufinus, whose work seems to have been first known in Georgia through Ephrem the Youngers translation of Theodoretus in the eleventh century. It is probably from Rufinus that the story of the healing of the youth ( p. 31) is inserted; the use of the word cilici, and the Chapter Home  | TOC  | Index
