Now in Flesh Appearing – Notes on Armenian Images.

Updated: Oct 1, 2023


The catalogue Treasures from the Ark: 1700 Years of Armenian Christian Art, edited by Vrej Nersessian, is an outstanding publication of enduring importance, probably now the most accessible introduction to Armenian art.”


- Charles Lock



This essay has its origins in a letter of 2001 addressed in appreciation and gratitude to the Revd. Dr. Vrej Nersessian, curator of the British Library’s exhibition, “Treasures from the Ark: 1700 Years of Armenian Christian Art,” held in London between March and May 2001. Though the exhibition is now but a memory, and the catalogue no longer in print, I have been asked to transform the letter into a short essay.
