October 14, 2010

Akhtamar to help bridge a divide?

Despite being an object of dispute between Turks and Armenians, the historic Surb Khach Church (Holly Cross) on Akhtamar Island has also recently paved the way for dialogue between Armenian and Turkish scholars.

Ara Sarafyan, director of the London-based Komitas Institute, and Osman Koker, owner of Birzamanlar Publications, have published a book about Akhtamar Island.

The book is titled “Aghtamar: A Jewel of Medieval Armenian Architecture / Akhtamar: Ortacag Ermeni Mimarlgi’nin Mucevheri” and is available in both English and Turkish.
