Jerusalem’s Testimony


Armenian inscriptions mention the colorful tiles used in Jerusalem’s St. Hakobyants monastery, created in Komitas’s homeland Kutahya. When conquering Jerusalem, the Egyptian sultan confused the monastery with a mosque and prostrated himself in prayer. Finding out the reality, he ordered to destroy the monastery. But, Armenian monks convinced him to only remove the dome and seal the door. In this design were used pieces of porcelain from Jerusalem’s St. Hakobyans monastery, as well as fragments from “Urbatagirq” (The Book of Friday).
