Japanese researcher writes book on Armenian Church and Nerses Shnorhali

Japanese researcher Karen Hamada has written a book about the Armenian Apostolic Church and Nerses the Gracious (Nersess Shnorhali), a 12th century Armenian priest, theologian, poet and hymnographer.

Armenian Ambassador to Japan Areg Hovhannisyan held a meeting with Hamada, who is studying Armenology, on Monday, the Armenian Embassy said.

Hamada’s work is the first Japanese book on Nerses the Gracious and Armenian Christianity. She translated a part of the book from Shnorhali’s work in Classical Armenian (Grabar).

Before writing the book, Karen Hamada also published several articles on the history of Christianity in Armenia.
