He took holy orders after the death of his wife, leaving his two sons, Grigor and Hovhannes, at the monastery of Narek to study under the tutelage of the abbot the scholar Anania Narekasti. In Armenian history and literature he is known for his commentary on the divine liturgy of the Armenian Apostolic Church, in which he skillfully interprets its ceremonies, prayers, rites, sacred hymns, blessings and supplications.
