Title: Medieval Armenian Gospel illumination in the Lake Van region Abstract: The artistic character of Armenian illuminated manuscripts was often determined by the cultural environment and political situation of the region where the scriptorium was active. The Lake Van area, the former Vaspurakan province and domain of the Artsruni kings, after the fall of the kingdom in the 11th century, fell under Byzantine, Seljuk, Mongol dominations and was marked by a unique evolution of the arts. The local artistic traditions, enriched by cultural exchanges with Middle Eastern countries, were sufficiently alive to dispense with Byzantine art. We will attempt to reveal the artistic trends that characterized the Gospel illumination of the Lake Van region from the 13th century onwards.
