Antelias publishes the second edition of 'Armenian Cilicia'

Dr. Haroutyoun Der Ghazarian's book on Armenian CiliciaThe Catholicosate of Cilicia?s Printing House in Antelias recently published the second edition of Dr. Haroutyoun Der Ghazarian?s topographical work ?Armenian Cilicia? with the generous financial support of the Department of Armenian Affairs of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.


The first edition of this valuable topographical work on Cilicia was published in 1966 also in Antelias. The author has dedicated his book to ?the eternal memory of passionate protector of the Armenian Church and the Cilician See, Catholicos Zareh I.?


This study is unique in its kind as the only topographical study of the region. In 399 pages, it condenses valuable information, photographs and topographical maps prepared by the author himself.


Dr. Der Ghougassian has authored the book based on his observations during his journeys through Cilicia as a young man. The work was first prepared as a personal self-interest on the part of the author and was later edited for publication. It is particularly valuable for researchers interested in the Cilician world.
