Cette photo et la dernière concernant mon voyage en Armenie , vous voyez un grand batiment avec des sculptures. Celui, c'est inveteur/createur l'alphabet armenien. Il s'appelle Mesrop Mashtots.
Voici la petite biographie de Mashtots:
Mesrob Mashtots was born in Taron[1] and died in Vagharshapat. Koryun, his pupil and biographer, tells us that Mesrop received a liberal education, and was versed in the Greek, Syriac, and Persian languages[1]. On account of his piety and learning Mesrob was appointed secretary to King Chosroes III. His duty was to write in Greek, Persian, and Syriac characters the decrees and edicts of the sovereign.

But Mesrop felt called to a more perfect life. Leaving the court for the service of God, he took holy orders, and withdrew to a monastery with a few chosen companions. There, says Koryun, he practiced great austerities, enduring hunger and thirst, cold and poverty. He lived on vegetables, wore a hair shirt, slept upon the ground, and often spent whole nights in prayer and the study of the Holy Scriptures. This life he continued for a few years, preparing himself for the great work to which Providence was soon to call him. Indeed both Church and State needed his services.
