A Pilgrims Guide to Ancient Armenia: A celebration of the Armenia that avoided destruction: the monuments, the churches and Armenians who persevered in the face of persecution.

Tuesday, October 29, 2019 at 7:45 pm
St. Leon Church Abajian Hall, 12-61 Saddle River Road, Fair Lawn, NJ 07410

Explore Western Armenia and the First Armenian Republic with author-photographer Matthew Karanian and chart your journey to the ancient Armenian lands of Yerevan, Gyumri, Kars, Ani, Van, Bitlis, Diyarbakir, Erzerum, Kharpert and Sebastia.

Join Matthew Karanian as he brings together the power of the Armenian past with its material presence today through a masterful combination of story-telling and photographs that are beautiful and arresting and, as noted by Peter Balakian, offer a special perspective on the haunting beauty of Armenia’s surviving material culture and its moral significance.

Matthew Karanian has journeyed throughout the lands of Armenia since 1995. He is the author of the best-selling English language book, Armenia and Karabakh: The Stone Travel Guide, Historic Armenia After 100 Years, and Edge of Time: Traveling in Armenia and Karabagh.

The event is free. A reception will follow the presentation and book signing. For information call 201-791-2862.
