Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0892366397, Hardcover)

Treasures from the Ark, an extensive new survey of Armenian Christian art, catalogues a major exhibition during the spring 2001 at the British Library. The extraordinary quality and range of Armenian art that is documented includes sculpture, metalwork, textiles, ceramics, wood carvings, and illuminated manuscripts. It has been collected from around the world, much never seen outside Armenia.
In his authoritative text, Vrej Nersessian charts the development of Christianity in Armenia. This fascinating history is essential to an understanding of the art and religious tradition of Armenia, a country in which the sense of the sacred extends well beyond the purely religious, permeating the entire fabric of Armenian affairs to create a fascinating culture.
