In this episode Dr. Maranci guides us through the fascinating history of ancient Armenia and introduces a variety of historical characters including Tiridates III and the conversion of the Kingdom of Armenia to Christianity.
From persecution in the Roman Empire, war with the Persians to religious strife in Armenia, Dr. Maranci guides us through this turmoil and the eventual mythicized conversion of Tiridates III to Christianity and the conversion of the Kingdom of Armenia.
From the Roman influence in Armenian politics to sexual violence and beyond to conversion we are painted an awesomely intense picture of Armenia in Antiquity and we also see how these foreign powers and religious movements influence Armenian Architecture.
