A comparative study of early Irish and Armenian Christianity
Armenia and Ireland represented the easternmost and westernmost borders respectively of Christendom and the territory covered by Pax Romana. However, the histories of the two churches were never subjected to a comparative study. The EU-funded CHRISTIAN_FRONTIERS project will investigate early Armenian and Irish Christian identities and specify how they understood their position in relation to the Roman papacy and how Rome regarded these two distant churches. It will explore the history and the defending features of the two national churches. It will introduce a new methodology based on a comparative study of both Irish and Armenian Christianity using a wide range of sources from Ireland and Armenia, contributing to facts about the medieval history of the two countries.
