Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book traces Anglo-Armenian relations from the earliest mediaeval times to the present and really opens the eyes to the way the Armenian nation has contributed to international politics. How is it that English school children are never taught that King Levon VI, the last King of Armenia, travelled to Europe, seeking European help to regain his kingdom and defend his people against the Egyptian Mamluks, but, finding England and France immersed in the Hundred Years' War, offered himself as a mediator between Charles VI of France and Richard II of England? How's that for early international diplomacy? Having studied the poems of Lord Byron, I have only just learned that, arriving in Venice in 1816, he took up the study of the Armenian language - both colloquial Armenian and the language of the Armenian bible and liturgy - at the Monastery of San Lazzaro with Father Pasquale Avgerian because he wanted something "craggy" to break his mind on! He produced an Armenian grammar book and also translated various texts, notably some New Testament texts which exist in the Armenian but not in the Greek. I have also been fascinated to learn of what long-standing (long pre-dating WWI) is the hatred of Turk for Armenian. Let us hope that the situation, thrown into sharp relief by the murder of Hrant Dink so recently, has now changed, but with Turkey applying to join the EU, I would like to think that the nations of Europe will require of Turkey that she acknowledges the genocide of Armenians perpetrated by her during the 1st World War - 1.5 million massacred - ethnic clensing before the term "ethnic clensing" was coined! It pains me to say that England is not one of those nations of Europe that recognises the Armenian Genocide as a genocide. It's time it did. The final chapters of this book should go a long way to convincing those who seek to inform themselves on these matters of the reasons why!
