Armenian Communities of Asia Minor

Editor: Richard G. Hovannissian

The Armenian communities of western Asia Minor were far removed from the historic Armenian territories on the great highland plateau lying to the east and the fertile Cilician plain bordering the Mediterranean Sea to the south. These communities were relatively new, dating to the later centuries of the Byzantine Empire and the early centuries of the Ottoman Empire as a result of invasions and turbulence in the homeland, the fall of the last Armenian kingdom, and the ruin and devastation caused by the recurrent Ottoman-Persian wars. In time, scores of Armenian villages and towns sprang up around Constantinople. This volume is intended to provide glimpses into the life of these communities and the real people who lived them.
