The article discusses the study of medieval Armenian art and architecture. The author states that given the fact that the area was on the fringes of the better known areas of study, Byzantium and the Latin West, it developed its own architectural style and that cultural activity there was vigorous. Epigraphy was flourishing in Armenia when it was all but unknown elsewhere in the region. The article studies the design and decoration of a medieval church at Mren.
