Does history repeat itself? Recent events have served as a catalyst to discuss and ponder the lessons that might be drawn from history. Under the careful curation of historian and guest editor Suren Manukyan, the February 2021 issue delves into the past to try and understand the present. From the adoption of Christianity in 301 A.D. and the creation of the Armenian Alphabet a century later to the re-establishment of statehood in Cilicia, the fall of Kars and the collapse of the First Armenian Republic and beyond. More than ever, revisiting historical events through a new lens is essential for the Armenian people. Faced with similar circumstances from the past, we are collectively responsible for the chapter of Armenian history being written today.
