THE ARMENIAN CHURCH

THE Armenian Church may be roughly described as about half way between the Greek Church and High Church Episcopalianism. Its head, called the Catholicos, has his see in a very ancient monastery at Etchmiadzin in Russian Armenia, near the foot of Mt. Ararat.

Under the preaching of missionaries, a part of the Armenians have become Protestants, and another part Roman Catholics; but the great bulk of them still adhere to their ancient national church.

The Armenians are eager for education, and have flocked in large numbers to the many schools and
colleges that have been maintained in Asia Minor for years by the American Board of Foreign Missions, until the massacres and deportations of 1915-16 deprived them of almost all their pupils.

Owing to centuries of persecution, Armenian colonies are scattered all over the world. There are said to be fully 250,000 Armenians in the United States, and some estimates place the number much higher.
