New Publication on “Embodied Wisdom”

Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin – 4/2/14

With blessings from His Holiness Karekin II, Supreme Patriarch and Catholicos of All Armenians, the Publishing Department of the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin has published the work entitled “From Ancient Near East to Christian Armenia: Origin and Progress of the Concept of Embodied Wisdom According to Proverbs 1-9” by Rev. Fr. Shahe Ananyan, Director of the Etchmiadzin Monthly Journal, and a teacher at the Gevorkian Theological Seminary.

The research material consists of interpretation and explanation of the chapters from the book of Proverbs 1-9 according to the canonical scripture of the Holy Bible. The work aims to identify and pinpoint the philosophic and fundamental roots of the concept of wisdom as a possible and clear example of Christian philosophy. It not only refers to Biblical events and concepts, but also tries to observe them in the light of the perceptions of the philosophical and theological schools of the Ancient world and during the early Christian period.

The book was published through the sponsorship of the Sarkis Gabrielian Foundation.
