ARMENIAN BAGHESH/BITLIS AND TARON
Edited by Richard G. Hovannisian
Armenian Baghesh/Bitlis and Taron/Mush is the second publication of the UCLA conference series, “Historic Armenian Cities and Provinces,” . This beautiful, rugged land in the southwestern sector of historic Greater Armenia is known to have been one of the earliest centers of Armenian settlement. It was here that evolved Armenian Baghesh and Taron, which became a part of the medieval principality of Turuberan and later the administrative districts of Bitlis and Mush.
Scholars from several disciplines present the story of Armenian Baghesh/Bitlis and Taron/Turuberan/Mush from ancient to modern times. Other regions to be featured in subsequent volumes in this series are Tsopk/Kharpert; Karin/Erzerum; Sebasia/Sivas; Tigranakert/Diarbekir and Edessa/Urfa; Cilicia; Constantinople; and Ani and Kars
