These slabs of tuff, basalt or dolomite are carved with highly decorative crosses, and their elaborate patterns suggest the influence of Islamic culture even as they attest to an unshakable Christian faith.
Medieval Armenia was not a centralized polity, and frequent foreign incursions - from the seventh century, when overlords practicing the new religion of Islam invaded greater Armenia; to the 13th century, when Mongol warriors raided the east of Anatolia; to the invasions of the Ottomans and Safavids in the later medieval era - were a constant threat.
Oct 25, Reverent Beauty: The Met's Armenia Show Is One for the Ages The Metropolitan Museum of Art gives the blockbuster treatment to Armenia, the oldest Christian country in the world. "Armenian Art and Creative Exchange on Medieval Trade Routes" Helen Evans, Mary and Michael Jaharis Curator for Byzantine Art at The Met, explores the importance of Armenia to world art, how Armenians developed a distinct form of Christian art, and how they influenced and integrated into the larger world by their control of trade routes in the Middle Ages. The goal of the exhibition from the museum's perspective is to show that Armenian art is part of the world's art and should be considered in that role. The Met's former director, Philippe de Montebello, published in a book that the khatchkar at the Met (on loan from Armenia) is to be part of the world's art. With this exhibition, we're trying to make many people recognize that.
What kept it all together was their own autocephalous church, not answerable to Rome or Constantinople. Rival kings and rich merchant families competed to deck out the most lavish cathedrals, and in the later medieval period scriptoria popped up in monasteries across greater Armenia, down into Crimea, and even as far as Italy, the source of several manuscripts here.
By the end of the 17th century, when Armenian power had flourished along new trade routes, an Italian aristocrat living in Constantinople received a gift: a panoramic map of the world of Armenian influence.
Known as the Tabula Chorographica Armenica, this foot painted map includes nearly sites of Armenian Christian worship, stretching past the Caucasus to Jerusalem and Iran. In one corner the bearded St.
Gregory destroys idols in an Ottoman town, while laymen and clergy, painted in a style more Persian than European softer features, finer lineschat amiably outside Etchmiadzin Cathedral, the Armenian equivalent of the Vatican. This boggling showstopper of a map was not meant for navigation, and the elite merchants who gazed on it would have appreciated its expression of the depth of Armenian trade routes in the new early modern age.
To modern eyes at the Met, it has other overtones: its breadth recalls the extent of the contemporary Armenian diaspora, and its numerous churches in Ottoman territory portend the genocide to come during World War I. Armenians, as this great show attests, have long been at the mercy of outside forces, and the beauty of this show is tinged with conquest and subjection.
Things were cared for and moved. Others remained when the Armenian population left.
The catalogue authors are largely Americans and they include what we anticipate being the next generation of scholars teaching about Armenia at American universities. The goal of the exhibition in terms of making people know about Armenia is that Armenian art and culture will be relevant in classes.
I would like to think in five to ten years, if you were doing a survey of art history, you would put an Armenian object in it. Right now you do not.
Metropolitan Museum to Host Major Exhibit on Armenian History, Manuscripts
What do we pick to care about? So I hope what will come through is how great the culture is and how it was an important player on international trade routes.
TB: Armenian history is very rich and layered, as you have mentioned. What would you like both Armenian and non-Armenians to take away from this exhibition?
HE: What I hope everyone will learn, and this is the standard I have for all my exhibits, is that after they walk through the exhibition, even without reading the labels, they can say whoever those people were, they were interesting.
I have heard people say this at the end of my exhibitions, so I know it happens. I want the show to be accessible in a way that Armenians will learn the breadth of their Armenian culture.
It is their belief in Christ through their unique church that helps keep Armenians united over vast distances. Sign in.
