ABSTRACT
The article discusses the Treaty of 1639 between Iran and Turkey and the impact that it had on Armenia. The geographic location of Greater and Lesser Armenia and the arrival of the Armenians in the region in the 8th century B.C. is discussed. The creation of the Safavid dynasty in 1501 and the resulting enmity between the Safavids and the Ottomans is considered as are wars that resulted between the two groups. Also under consideration are relations between the Ottomans and the Armenians in the 16th century. Shah Safi (1629-1642), leader of the Safavid empire, and a war with the Ottoman Empire, led at that time by Sultan Murat IV (1623-1640), is discussed. Other topics include the impact that the treaty had on Armenia's geography, its effect on relations with the Ottomans and international trade, and the migration of Armenians to Esfehan.
