For some of that time, the kingdom of Armenia was an independent entity: At the beginning of the 4th century A.

    Underscoring his consistently secular appreciation of history Khorenatzi constructs his historical leaders not as disembodied and lifeless agents of abstract godly virtue but as people of flesh and blood. He mentions History of the Armenians book his paternal grandfather Krikor George Kulhanjian came to America nearly years ago, obtained a menial job, learned how to speak, read, and write in his third language and ultimately became a US citizen. The author reflects about the success of his own father in the photo engraving business after serving in action in World War II in the Army Air Corps. Considering the diversity of this single nation, Panossian questions the theoretical assumption that nationalism must be homogenizing. The incorporation of the Temple of Garni, which was a gift from the Roman Empire to Armenians, is fascinating for readers. Others even practice both faiths depending on where they are.
