Hovhannes Draskhanakerttsi

Hovhannes Draskhanakerttsi (Armenian: , John of Drasxanakert, i.e. Gyumri, various spellings) was Catholicos of Armenia from 897 to 925, and a noted chronicler and historian. He is called John V the Historian, and is known for his History of Armenia.[1][2] It was printed at the end of the seventeenth century.[3] There is a recent English translation (1987) by Krikor Maksoudian.

After returning the Catholicosate to Dvin since it had been reclaimed from the Arabs, he moved it again to Vaspurakan around 924. According to local traditions, Hovhannes was buried in Vaspurakan at either Joroy Vank or in the monastery of Akhtamar.
