Մովսես Խորենացի

60-ies of the V century: the neighboring village Vagharshapat is hosting the Catholicos of All Armenians Gyut. Those sitting at the table with him ask an old man, who lived there as a stranger, to make a toast to the Catholicos. The old man makes the toast in the style of sharakan (Armenian chant). Everyone is startled. The Catholicos Gyut gets closer to him and bows low to kiss his Teacher he was seeking for so many years. That old man was Movses Khorenatsi, the greatest of written Armenian culture Golden age.
