English This paper provides the detailed descriptions of two Armenian manuscripts kept in two Swiss collections – Martin Bodmer Foundation in Cologny (Codex Bodmer 34) and Stiftsbibliothek of Saint Gall (No. 1513). The manuscript of the Bodmer Foundation is a 17th-century Gospel manuscript, which also comprises a hitherto unpublished version of Step'anos Siwnec'i’s "Commentary of Canon Tables", whose text and an annotated translation are given in the present article. Given the theological and historical importance of this manuscript’s colophon, its complete translation is also provided. The second manuscript is a handwritten copy of Joachim Schröder’s "Thesaurus linguæ Armenicæ", copied in 1775 by a local monk at the Abbey of Saint Gall, where it continues to be preserved.
