Armenian literature, notably from 11th century, is rich in prophetic texts. This paper investigates the Latin tradition of one of these texts, the Visio et Prophetia Norsei viri Dei, a considerably stratified work in its Armenian tradition, attributed to the 4th century patriarch Nersēs the Great. The paper aims to define when and in what context this work may have been translated from Armenian to Latin, providing a brief presentation of the text, a general overview of the current state of research, a focus on the origin of the Latin version and its diffusion in the West, and a critical edition of the text based on the four known manuscripts.
