A cave monastery located at the Cilician Gates in Western Armenia. The region was known as Nahita or Naxita in the ancient world. Unfortunately, the monastery has been given Byzantine, Greek, and Turkish names (and history) throughout the last few centuries.
Some of you may not be aware of the fact that the Byzantine language of ‘Koine’ was not considered to be “Greek” during the middle-ages when the Byzantine empire was formed. Koine was the language of commerce and trade that was spoken by Armenians, Bulgarians, Italians, Albanians, Macedonians, Jews, and other Christians and merchants from Southern Europe, “Anatolia” and the Mediterranean.
Once the Turkish-Christians, Albanians, and Slavs living in the Ottoman Empire won their independence in 1832, Britain, France, and Russia recognized them as a “Kingdom” and the German Otto of Wittelsbach became King of Greece.
The NEW Greece barely had anything in common historically or genetically with the ancient Hellenic people. The first 3 leaders of Greece spoke Albanian. For 3 generations the elders of the Church had to teach these Albanian, Macedonian, Vlach, and Slavic children the ancient alphabet and language of Koine before they could start telling the world they are the “ancient Hellenes”.
The distortion of Armenian history continued throughout their literature. The Armenian-built “Hagia Sophia” originally had massive swastikas on the ceilings. The Greeks painted crosses on top of them to try and conceal them.
Even in this cave monastery, you can see the ancient Iron Cross carved into the walls, surrounded by the more recent Byzantine murals and paintings that were painted on the walls centuries after the cave was carved out. I happen to believe that the ancient Churches in Armenia were built during Christ’s time, and they are much older than we are told or taught.
This ancient technology of carving perfectly symmetrical structures and temples out of mountains or massive rocks is only found in certain parts of the world, including Armenia (Geghard), Ethiopia (Lalibela), Egypt (Abu Simbel), India, Cyprus, and Petra in Jordan to name a few.
The most important question is, who taught the first Christians how to engineer such things and possess the knowledge that was only known by the ancient builders of the old world. The giants, titans, or the winged demi-Gods are known as the “Anunaki”.
Why was it passed down to the first Armenian-Christians (Paulicians), and why were these Armenian-Christians labeled “heretics” by the Roman and Byzantine empires.
