The History of Armenia attributed to Moses of Chorene is an early account of Armenia, covering the mythological origins of the Armenian people as well as Sassanid, Byzantine and Arsacid Armenia down to the 5th century.

It contains unique material on ancient Armenian legends, and such information on pagan (pre-Christian) Armenian as has survived. It also contains plentiful data on the history and culture of contiguous countries. The book had an enormous impact on Armenian historiography. In the text, the author self-identifies as a disciple of Saint Mesrop, and states that he composed his work at the request of Isaac (Sahak), the Bagratuni prince who fell in battle in 482.
