The Culture of Julfa khachkars and their Repatriation Movement

Hamlet Petrosyan    Yerevan State University, Armenia    



The destruction of Julfa khachkars by Azerbaijani authorities in 2005-2006 at the state level became a stimulus for a unique awakening aimed at the proclamation and dissemination of Jugha classic khachkars. Today, if the number of Julfa original khachkars in the world does not exceed three dozen, the number of their replicas exceeds three hundred. The article presents the khachkar culture of Julfa, the process of copying the destroyed khachkars, the experience of digital repatriation.

keywords: Khachkar. Julfa. Destruction. Replica. Repatriation movement.
