Response to Study on Horomos monastery by Edda Vardanyan - Table of Contents

 

Especially for the inscriptions (which are given translations into English and are individually analysed), the history of the monastery, and the architectural descriptions of each monument. However, the chapter on the octagonal dome of the gavit is an example of over analysis, imo, and the book's absolute certainty, despite the lack of physical or textual evidence, that the gavit was purpose-built as a royal mausoleum is also not convincing to me. The photos are scattered about the book a bit too much, and sometimes are too small to adequately illustrate what is being described.
