Medieval Armenian Art and Architecture, Hardback Book

Medieval Armenian Art and Architecture Hardback

Description

Davies' study of medieval Armenian architecture focuses on one of Armenia's most outstanding medieval monuments, the Church of the Holy Cross at Aght'amar.

The church, built a thousand years ago, has survived intact and provides a valuable glimpse of the art of the 10th-century kingdom of Vaspurakin.

The sculptural and mural programmes are discussed in detail as are the influences on the artwork and the subsequent history of the church up to the present day.
