The Beinecke Library holds about 40 Armenian manuscripts: 7 manuscripts under the Armenian MS shelfmark, 22 are part of the Hartford Seminary Collection, and 11 others are found in the general collection. "Armenian" is defined broadly to include manuscripts written in Armenian or produced in historical regions of Armenia.
In the finding aid below, manuscripts are sorted by shelfmark and ordered chronologically within each group. Basic codicological information is provided. Where available, images in the Beinecke Digital Collections are linked through the photo accompanying each item.
The Hartford Seminary Armenian manuscripts and several of the Armenian manuscripts from the Beinecke's general holdings were described by Avedis K. Sanjian in A Catalogue of Medieval Armenian Manuscripts in the United States (1976); the notes below rely on this catalog. Many of these manuscripts are not yet in Orbis (as of March 2016) and should be requested directly through Aeon.
