The Armenian Orthodox Church

Armenian tradition traces its origins to the Apostles Thaddeus and Bartholomew, but the great missionary of Armenia was St Gregory Partev or Gregory the Illuminator (Enlightener), c.240-332. Perhaps as early as 301 Christianity was the prevailing religion in Armenia. Gregory was from Caesarea in Cappadocia, but it is clear that parts of Armenia were influenced by Syriac-speaking Christianity, with ties to Edessa. Thus we find a two-fold liturgical influence, followed by Byzantine influence, and then in the twelfth century, Latin influence. All these influences have left telltale marks, in varying degrees, on the liturgical rites.
