The Martyrdom of Vahan Date of Birth: Unknown, probably 1st half of the 8th c. Place of Birth: Unknown Date of Death: Unknown, probably 2nd half of the 8th c. Place of Death: Unknown
It is unclear from the Martyrdom whether the author was Abraham, or an unnamed monk from the unspecified monastery of which Abraham was abbot. Together they visited Vahan’s martyrium in Ruṣāfa seven years after Vahan’s death (i.e. in 744).
