Claude Mutafian’s most recent book, Jérusalem et les Arméniens: Jusqu’à la conquête ottomane (1516), presents the relations between Armenia and Jerusalem in their historical and artistic context with an abundance of maps, genealogical charts, and images.

Mutafian is also the co-author with Levon Chorbajian and Patrick Donabedian of The Caucasian Knot: The History and Geo-Politics of Nagorno-Karabagh, which remains a valuable and relevant study nearly three decades after its publication.

In this special presentation he will cover both topics. There will also be a musical presentation by acclaimed composer and pianist Vatche Mankerian.


Claude Mutafian has published many books about various topics concerning Armenia, among which the Atlas Historique de l'Arménie (2001) which covers thirty centuries, L’Arménie du Levant (2012), and La Saga des Arméniens de l'Ararat aux Carpates (2018). He also organized many exhibitions, including “The Armenian Kingdom of Cilicia” (Paris, Sorbonne, 1993), “Roma-Armenia” (Vatican, Great Sistine Hall, 1999), and “Armenia, the Magic of Writing” (Marseilles, 2007).




This special event will take place at the Sheen Chapel of Ararat-Eskijian Museum and live via the Zoom webinar platform. For more information call the Ararat-Eskijian Museum at 747-500-7584 or e-mail
