The first monastery there was established by an Armenian, St Euthymius. It has been prominent and sustained through all the vicissitudes of this stormy country and the Armenian Quarter is an integral and distinctive part of Jerusalems Old City today. This long history has created an unique form of Armenian life and language. The Armenians in Jerusalem and the Holy Land assembles essays by the worlds leading authorities on numerous aspects of this ancient, richly traditional community. The essays were prepared on occasion of the thirtieth anniversary of the program in Armenian Studies at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
