Written by the Curator of Armenian Collections at the British Library, this book gives an overview of the history of the Armenian Bible and its illustration styles. From the dust jacket: “The Bible in the Armenian Tradition tackles the origin, history, and character of the Armenian translation of the Bible…The first work of Armenian literature was the Bible, therefore the Armenian people has always had a very special consideration and deep respect for the written word and, ultimately, for the book.”
