As is well known, manuscript books had a crucial role in the elaboration and transmission of Armenian culture, thought, and art. This paper aims to open up new research avenues by switching the traditional focus from major production centres, scribes, and artists to the circulation of manuscripts. The study of manuscript mobility, be it deliberate (via personal or institutional networks and traveling artisans) or accidental (through sale or plunder and recovery), has great potential for deepening our understanding of the cultural dynamics at work in medieval Armenian societies.
