Commentary on the Song of Songs

Gregory of Narek, Commentary on the Song of Songs (in Classical Armenian), Venice, 1789

  Narekatsi wrote the Commentary of the Song of Songs in 977 by the order of prince Gurgen Andzevatsi (a king of the Artzrunids Dynasty in 990-1003). That was the time when Narekatsi was ordained priest with the wish of celibate. This commentary was probably the first work of Narekatsi. The commentary was translated into English by Roberta Ervin. It was published in 2008.
