ARMENIAN ART TREASURES OF JERUSALEM
Edited by Bexalel Narkiss in collaboration with Michael E. Stone, with historical survey by Avedis K. Sanjian and managing editor Alexander Peli
One of the world's great art treasures is the collection of the Jerusalem Patriarchate of the Armenian Church, the richest and most important concentration of Armenian art in the world. Its wealth stems from the place held by Jerusalem in the minds and hearts of the Armenians throughout their existence as a Christian nation, since the fourth century A.D. Pilgrims brought to Jerusalem many of the outstanding creations of Armenian artists, which were deposited in the treasury and library of the Armenian Cathedral of St. James (S. Hakob). Here, for the first time, this collection has been photographed and described extensively.
