Charles Dowsett
Decoding the mysteries of medieval Armenia

The thirty studies collected in this volume belong to Charles James Frank Dowsett (1924-1998), the First Calouste Gulbenkian Professor of Armenian Studies in Oxford from 1964 to 1991.The articles cover a period from 1951 to his retirement in 1990, explore and elaborate topics of Armenian history, literary sources, classical, patristic, medieval and early modern, his lifelong contribution to Armenia’s heritage. The most fascinating aspect of the studies are the titles and the manner in which the content of the studies expand in unpredictable direction thanks to his prodigious range of learning.
