Response to Monastery info

 

Raffi,

Hi, I shall make contact through your email address at cilicia.com

I'll check again on Armeniapedia. I saw the material from the 1953 source, and also the entry from the Armenian Place-names Dictionary, but I do realise there is a very rich layer of folk stories associated with Yeghrdut, which I would certainly like to explore further.

Having said this, there are so many monasteries on the plain of Mush which have simply gone under the radar when it comes to histories of Taron, that it is difficult to focus on one at the exclusion of so many others.

Only Surb Karapet, and to a lesser degree, Arakelots, seems to get the publicity, a policy I suspect that was initiated a great many centuries ago by the monks and clerics of the former.

Once again, thanks for your help on this matter.

Regards,

Andrew
