To Know Wisdom and Instruction
In A.D. 1512, at a period in which the number of manuscripts copied in the Armenian language was relatively low, Hakob Meghapart (Jakob the Sinner) created the first Armenian Press in Venice, Italy, and published the first printed Armenian book, The Urbatagirk' (The Book of Fridays). His action inaugurated what would become a rich printed literary tradition and would lead to a rebirth of Armenian scholarship. This book was the companion text for the Library's 2012 exhibit To Know Wisdom and Instruction. Written by Levon Avdoyan.
