Grigor III Pahlavuni (Armenian: Գրիգոր Գ. Պահլավունի; also Catholicos Grigor III Pahlavuni or Gregory III of Cilicia) (1093–1166) officially became catholicos of the Armenian Apostolic Church in the year 1113. He is known for his sharakans, which are collections of hymns, and for the several lays he had written during his lifetime. The sharakans written by Pahlavuni typically have strong doctrinal influences and several relate to either the Feast of the Annunciation or Palm Sunday. Two of his better known sharakans are Khorhudn Hanchar and Metsahrash. Pahlavuni earned the nickname “the younger lover of martyrs” because of his love for translating martyrologies from Greek and Latin to Armenian. During his time as catholicos, Grigor III and Pope Innocent II occasionally had some correspondence with one another. Only one of the letters aforementioned still survives as an Armenian translation of a letter from Pope Innocent II to the catholicos.
