Abstract

[automatically translated] It proposes to the reader of the twenty-first century in the Italian translation, accompanied by extensive release notes and discussion, the booklet miscellaneous (1877) with which the Moesinger made accessible to people of culture narrative of the preaching and martyrdom of St. Bartholomew the Apostle contained in Armenian martyrs. It was an innovative interpretation conducted with the rigor of the philologist, who gave impetus to the hagiography of comparative studies that were conducted primarily on the apocryphal Acts of the Apostles. The collation of texts represented here, from different historiographical spheres, provides us with reliable information on the first attempts of evangelization of those territories of the Middle East, when Armenia Major, subject to the expansionist ambitions of neighboring kingdoms, It constituted a privileged place of comparison between different cultures and political systems. In addition, the Latin text of the same Moesinger here is reviewed by a discussion of changes, mistakes and errors of the primitive press, and also adds a critical note on the text of the pseudo-Obadiah that he constructed.
