Zvartnots is the oldest and largest aisled tetraconch church in historical Armenia. It was built in the middle of the 7th century CE, under the instructions of the Catholicos Nerses III (r. 641-661 CE). It was partially reconstructed in 1905 CE - based on the research of the Armenian architectural historian Toros Toramanian (1864-1934 CE) - and Zvartnots’ ruins can be visited today.
This image was scanned from Medieval Armenian Architecture: Constructions of Race and Nation by Christina Maranci. The sketch was drawn by Toros Toramanian and first published in the 1918 book Die Baukunst der Armenier und Europa by Josef Strzygowski.
