Medieval Map Of Armenia – Tabula Chorographica Armenica

This large map from Tabula Chorographica Armenica (Constantinople 1691), a luxurious guide for elite traders and scholars, demonstrates the expansion of the Armenian Church at the end of the 17th century.

Almost eight hundred objects are illustrated on the map, including large Armenian church centers – the Catholicosate of Etchmiadzin, Gandzasar, Aghtamar, Cilicia, and the patriarchies of Jerusalem and Constantinople.

Also depicted are important churches and locations in the Ottoman Empire – from Nishapur to churches and monasteries in Crimea. On the map, you can see priests and men in a modern Ottoman dress in front of the Etchmiadzin Cathedral.
