Description
The Etchmiadzin Chronicles brings together the accounts of scores of travelers who visited Holy Etchmiadzin from the thirteenth to the nineteenth centuries and recorded their observations, feelings and judgments on the holiest shrine of the Armenian people.

Those writers, both men and women, were of different nationalities, backgrounds and religious affiliations. They included missionaries, generals, diplomats, scholars, scientists, botanists, explorers, astronomers, public servants, merchants, adventurers and simple tourists, but they were all united in their love of travel and their desire to share their experiences.

Of the more than ninety authors represented, the largest percentage came from France, followed by Great Britain, Germany, Russia, Italy and the United States. The accounts of the visits to Etchmiadzin by leaders like Czar Nicholas I of Russia, Crown Prince Abbas Mirza of Persia and Prince Victor Emmanuel of Italy are also featured in the volume.

The book is divided chronologically according to the language of the texts presented. While primarily in English, the book also contains accounts in Italian, German, Russian and French.

These impressions of Etchmiadzin and of Armenian pilgrims provide an invaluable source on the history of Eastern Christianity and enable readers to better understand perceptions of Armenians by the outside world.
