abstract

The article provides a survey of the antique and late antique sources of the medieval Armenian fable tradition as attested in the collections ascribed to Mxit‘ar Goš and Vardan Aygekc‘i. Some examples of reuse of those sources are given, where the medieval Armenian authors/compilers recast and expanded their models, shifting from their original intent, adding to them didactic and parenetic discourses, or framing them in new exempla or fables.
