Armenian Manuscripts on microfilm
Several items from repositories in Oregon, Austria, and the Vatican.
Austrian National Library, Vienna
Microfilms of 186 Slavic manuscripts, 34 Armenian manuscripts, and 5 Georgian manuscripts. These are copies of manuscripts that apparently came into Austrian hands at some time during the Renaissance (before A.D. 1600). 115 of the 186 Slavic manuscripts are indicated as being written in Serbian Old Slavonic, 10 in Bulgarian Old Slavonic, 10 in Glagolithic (Croatian Old Slavonic), 15 in Russian Old Slavonic, 8 in Russian, 7 in Serbian, 2 in Rumanian, and 19 in a language not indicated (but probably Serbian Old Slavonic). 91 are of liturgical content (including psalters and menaea), 27 are biblical, 5 are biblical commentary, 10 are patristic, 10 ascetical, 13 hagiographic, 4 theology, 9 canon law, 6 profane, and 1 unidentified. Of the Armenian holdings, 15 are liturgical, 7 biblical, 4 theological, 1 hagiographical, 1 historical, 1 a dictionary, and 4 are unidentified. Finally, the Georgian manuscripts include a Gospel and a lectionary of the Gospels, 2 menaea, and 1 collection of translations of patristic homilies. (The German name of this repository is the Osterreichische Nationalbibliothek.) Copies of the materials may be purchased by scholars if the Viennese grant permission.
Mekhitarist Monastery Library, Vienna
Microfilms of 1,193 Armenian manuscripts (of a collection of 1,304 items). These items cover a variety of subjects and are not as heavily concentrated in liturgy and scripture as those in the Austrian National Library.
