The volume of manuscripts “The handwritten heritage of Artsakh and Utik”, which summarizes more than 100 paintings and popular scientific materials, is aimed at popularizing the rich, but unfamiliar, medieval written heritage of Artsakh. The authors of the research book in English are Hravard Hakobyan, Tamara Minasyan and Vahe Torosyan. “Although the subject of the book itself refers to the handwritten heritage of Artsakh and Utik, the first chapter briefly touches on the political history of Artsakh and Utik, the church of Aghvan, the history of the Catholicosate of Aghvan. We present from antiquity to the first half of the 19th century. 

It is important to emphasize the problem of the border of Greater Armenia with the Aghvank itself, which, as foreign and Armenian sources very clearly wrote and recorded, was the Kur River. We raise this reality and also represent the period when the history of Artsakh and Utik was under Arab rule, the regions of the Bagratuni Kingdom, Zakaryan Regions of Armenia, and summed up the meliks of Artsakh,” Vahe Torosyan said.
