The Armenians, a people in exile by David Marshall Lang( Book )

36 editions published between 1976 and 1991 in English and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a 3,000 year history of one of Europe's most fascinating and ancient peoples. Situated south of the Caucasus mountains, historical Armenia has been a pivotal point between the forces of the east and of the west over most of its long history. That history has seen subjugation and conquest by several rival empires. Art, historical literature and textual analysis contribute to the author's consideration of the realities and ideas of power in antique and early medieval Armenian elite society, which had elements in common with early medieval Western European society. The contributions of Armenians and their culture to European history are also examined." "The book closes with a survey of Armenia under foreign rule, since the 1070s, most recently under the Ottoman Empire and as part of the Soviet Union, and with Armenians recent experience and expectation of an independent, though tiny, Armenia, the most plausible for nearly a thousand years."--BOOK JACKET

Visions of Ararat : writings on Armenia by Christopher J Walker( Book )

15 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in English and and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Despite the great geographical gulf that separates them, Armenia and Europe have maintained links for many centuries - at least since the late Middle Ages when the King of Armenia travelled to London to try and reconcile the warring kingdoms of England and France. Since then, diverse travellers have written perceptively and affectionately of that far off, beautiful land and of a people who have shown great inner tenacity in the face of a difficult history. This anthology brings together the best writing on Armenia - accounts by travel writers, historians, soldiers, poets, painters and politicians. Each section is annotated and placed in context. The result is a lively and colourful picture of a resilient and resourceful people."--Bloomsbury Publishing
Reason and religion in late seventeenth-century England : the politics and theology of radical dissent by Christopher J Walker( Book )

9 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reason has always held an uncertain position within Christianity. "I believe because it is absurd'," wrote Tertullian in the third century as he dismissed rational thought. For Augustine of Hippo, reason had some merit as a route to faith but otherwise was of limited value, since it could undermine a person's ability to approach God: "the wisdom of the creature," he opined, "is a kind of twilight." In seventeenth-century England, reason had come to mean, most usually, a spirit of free enquiry: the exercise of human intelligence upon some form of truth, whether religious or scientific. The notion of revelation, by contrast, indicated the wider accepted divine scheme within which human existence was situated. Christopher J Walker here explores the tensions between the forces of reason and revelation within English religion in the volatile period following the end of the Civil War. Ranging widely across the ideas of The Great Tew Circle, the Cambridge Platonists and dissenters like Paul Best and John Bidle (the "father of English Unitarianism"), the author shows, controversially, that the rational thinking and politics of many of the most supposedly radical figures of the era were not antipathetic to Christian faith but actually integral to it. His book makes an important contribution to the history of both religion and ideas

Historic maps of Armenia : the cartographic heritage by Rouben Galichian( Book )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Armenia as a cultural and political entity has existed for over 3,000 years. Buffeted for the last 1,000 years between Russians, Turks, Persians and the various peoples of the Caucasus, Armenians have remarkably survived the looming presence of much more powerful neighbours. The existence of the country has been recorded by map-makers since the beginnings of cartography - including the various configurations of the borders of the Armenian homeland which have shifted backwards and forwards with the political fortunes of its peoples." "This book brings together a collection of maps from the earliest times into the modern era. It reproduces the most important representations of Armenia, from the oldest known version - a Babylonian clay tablet of the sixth century BC - to the renderings of Greek and Alexandrian cartographers, the early Christian maps as well as versions from Ottoman and other Islamic centres. Among the identified sixteenth and seventeenth century European maps, this book includes works by Martin Waldseemuller, Sebastian Munster, Gerardus Mercator, Abraham Ortelius, Willem Janszoon Blaeu and his son Joan, John Senex, Nicolas Sanson and Guillaume DeLisle." "Rouben Galichian has included maps from the British Library, the British Museum, the Bibliotheque Nationale de France, the Osterreichische Nationalbibliothek, Bayerische Staatsbibliotheck, the Library of Congress, the University of Bologna, the John Rylands Library and other sources. With his detailed descriptions of the 127 maps appearing here and his introductory text, the author has produced a work of reference, a tool to all who follow the history of Armenia, the Caucasus, the Ottoman and Iranian worlds, as well as to collectors and enthusiasts of cartography."--BOOK JACKET

"Shot in twelve countries and narrated by Academy Award-winning actress Olympia Dukakis, this program illustrates the epic journey of the Armenian people--from their origins centuries before Christ through their near-elimination early in the 20th century to the rebirth of their nation following the Soviet collapse. The film includes interviews with Nobel Peace Prize laureate Elie Wiesel; author Christopher Walker (The Armenians: Survival of a Nation); the head of the Armenian Apostolic Church, Catholicos Karekin II; and the former President of Armenia, Robert Kocharian. Archival footage from the 1915 Armenian Genocide and the era of Soviet Armenia adds further depth to this sweeping narrative."--Films Media Group website
