Encyclopaedia Mundi - Facsimil

ENCYCLOPAEDIA MUNDI

Encyclopaedia Mundi is a project whose goal is the facsimile reproduction of the most important documents and manuscripts that trace the historical singularity of Armenia, in addition to concrete works guarded in the Matenadaran of Yerevan or other archives.

These capital documents of the medieval epoch are crucial for understanding the historical singularity of the Armenia and trace the political and social profile. This guarantees the permanence and transmission of the historical and cultural heritage of Armenia, governments and institutions, as well as other actors of the past and present history of our environment. The original documents and manuscripts are recovered in various different archives and reproduced with innovative technologies that generate a precision of result that is virtually indistinguishable from the original. A study book accompanies each facsimile edition explaining one by one all the documents and with a historical narrative based on these fundamental documents.

Encyclopaedia Mundi is an initiative of Alex Nahabetian and Miguel Huguet.
