The Armenian History is a Continuous Cultural Memory – Frank Viviano

The Armenian History is a Continuous Cultural Memory“The contemporaries of their ancient ancestors were the Hittites, Phoenicians, Phrygians, Lydians, Chaldeans, and Medians. All those nations have long disappeared, but the Armenians still exist.

Traveling around Armenia, I was increasingly understanding that my trip essentially was a study of a centuries-old drama and of a sequence of disasters and rebirth, which reminds of the Biblical legend about Noah’s Ark that came to rest on Mount Ararat.

Armenians have never perceived history as a complex of distant events lost in the current of changes. They possess continuous millennia-old cultural memory. The originality of that nation survived the heyday and collapse of every single empire starting from Babylon to the USSR.”
