The materials here explore the history of the Armenian literary tradition, and are among the finer additions to the Library of Congress's online exhibits. These items complement an in site exhibit at the Library which included the first complete Armenian-language printed Bible and a finely illustrated 1962 Soviet edition of the Armenian national epic. The items here are collected into four primary sections: "Armenia," "From Manuscript to Print," "The Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries," and "The Twentieth and Twenty-first Centuries." Along with offering historical context and content, each of these sections offers a high-quality digital image of a key document from each period. Also, visitors can use the Exhibition Items area to look at items such as a fragment of embroidered ecclesiastical fabric from the 1740s.
