Two of Christ's Apostles - Thaddeus and Bartholomew - were the first evangelists of Armenia preaching the Gospel there as early as the second half of the century. In the early fourth century, St. Gregory the Illuminator (c. 240-332) formally established the church in Armenia, when King Tiridates III was baptized and proclaimed Christianity the official religion of Armenia.

The Ancient Land of Armenia

Armenia lies in the highlands surrounding the Biblical mountains of Ararat, upon which Noah's Ark is said to have come to rest after the flood.

The Kingdom of Armenia became the first state in the world to adopt Christianity as its official religion. Armenians call themselves Hay (Հայ) and the native…
