The volume introduces the papers presented at the Ninth Seminar on Armenian and Christian Eastern Art of the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. These studies provide a broad overview of the art of the South Caucasus and beyond; from Christian Art (the furnishings of the Basilica of the Nativity; the so-called crosses of St. Thomas; the illustrations of the apocryphal Gospels in Armenian manuscripts of the Vaspurakan School) to the transmigration of iconographic and symbolic themes between Persia and Armenia, to the travel narrative (Itinerarium) of Friar William Rubruk, to the Iron Age archaeological site of Taštepe (Iran), and concluding with the different architectural phases of the House of Creativity on Lake Sevan during the Soviet period. The volume restores the richness of themes and possible research perspectives in Eastern Christian Art, highlighting the important role of inscriptions as a possible leading thread.
