One of the world's greatest art treasures is here brought before the wide public for the first time. It is the collection of the Jerusalem Patriarchate of the Armenian Church, which is the richest and most important concentration of Armenian art in the world. Its wealth stems from the place of Jerusalem, the Holy City, 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. The book contains 194 illustrations, of which 131 are in color.
