Gladzor University Museum

This museum, established in 1984 on the 700th anniversary of Gladzor University, is located in the historic church of Saint Hakob (St. Jacob) in Vernashen village. The exhibition is devoted to higher education, scriptural art, the unprecedented rise of various branches of science in Medieval Armenia, and the history of Gladzor University, believed by some to have been located at Tanahati (Tanadeh) Monastery, 4.8 km from here. At Gladzor, students had a rigorous syllabus, studying Theology, Mythology, Philosophy, Bibliography, Grammar, Rhetoric, Logic, Arithmetic, Astronomy, Chronology and Geometry. The outstanding miniature painters Toros Taronatsi, Avag and Momik studied and worked at the university. Gladzor was a major center of calligraphy where hundreds of manuscripts were written and illuminated.
