The elder scrolls belong to the V century, they were created by Mesrop Mashtots, founder of the Armenian alphabet. In Soviet times, the manuscript was transported to Yerevan (by that time they already had more than 4 thousand), and in 1959 he built a special building, designed in the style of Armenian architecture of XII-XIII centuries.
