Finnish monk, Professor of Theology Serafim Seppälä has for years been studying the Armenian culture and history and has a number of publications on this topic, among them a 500-page book on Armenian art and culture; he is currently working on another book on the topic of the Armenian Genocide. In the interview with Panorama.am Father Serafim speaks about his works and his unique personal experience with Armenia, which he says is the last corner of the Middle Eastern cultures where the old Christian tradition is still preserved and which he calls the home of his soul.

You are aware that you are posting more than a year old article, right? The book about the genocide has been long ago published and all that.
I just need to find out how to say it in Slavonic!

All opinions expressed by myself are quite tragically my own, and not those of any other poster or wall hangings.

I just recently came across the article in an Armenian newspaper.   :)

It's always on your mind.
I'm not going to be posting as much on OC.Net as before. I might stop in once in a while though. But I've come to realize that real life is more important.
