Matenadaran – the Mesrop Mashtots Institute of Ancient Manuscripts is a museum of ancient manuscripts and a scientific research institute. It is a major center with a unique and exceptionally rich manuscript collection, one that has become a symbol of Armenia. Matenadaran is one of the world’s richest manuscript depositories, with a collection of nearly 17,500 manuscripts covering almost all areas of ancient and medieval Armenian Culture and Science: history, geography, grammar, philosophy, law, medicine, mathematics, cosmology, chronology, alchemy, literature, art history, miniature painting, music, literature in translation, etc.
