Today we celebrate Armenia’s independence day with fanfare and excitement as the world famous Metropolitan Museum of Art reveals its exhibition: ‘Armenia!’. The exhibit shines the spotlight on the importance of Christianity to the Armenian people and the significance of Armenians on trade routes from the 6th to 17th centuries. The collection of works spans from collections across the globe, notably from the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, the History Museum of Armenia, the Holy See of Cilicia, the Armenian Patriarchate of Jerusalem, the Library of San Lazzaro Abbey (Venice), the Biblioteca Universitaria Bologna, the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum, the British Library and countless loans from within the United States & Canada.
