Davit Ghazaryan, Old-Printed Armenian Amulets in Scroll of the Library of the Dudean Cultural House at Armenian Apostolic Patriarchat of Romania in Bucharest
This paper aims to present three Armenian old-printed Amulets in scroll from the old-printed Armenian book’s collection of the Library of the Dudean Cultural House at Armenian Apostolic Patriarchat of Romania in Bucharest. They are being studied for the first time (old-printed books n. 949, 948 and 998). The Amulets are from three different printing-houses: Etkear Gndevanec’i, Astvacatur Kostandnupolsec’i and Grigor Marzvanec’i. The three printing-houses had been operated in Constantinople (Turkey) in 17–18th centuries. The Amulets are mostly decorated with the gravures of the first Armenian gravurist Grigor Marzvanec'i. In one of this Amulets are also used the works of Dutchman gravurist Christophe Van Zikhem.
