Stepanos Asoghik

Stepanos Asoghik (Armenian: Ստեփանոս Ասողիկ), also known as Stepanos Taronetsi (Armenian: Ստեփանոս Տարոնեցի), was an Armenian historian of the 11th century. His dates are unknown but he came from Taron and earned the nickname Asoghik ("teller of stories"). He wrote a Universal History in three books. The first two books summarise the history of the world - with particular reference to Armenia - using the Bible, Eusebius of Caesarea, Moses of Khoren and others as sources. The third book deals with the history of the century leading up to Asoghik's own time in a rather disconnected fashion.
