Les Arméniens, la nation préférée des Latins ?

Abstract :

In 1184, the Armenian Church entered into communion with Rome, at the initiative of Patriarch Gregory IV Tgha, who sent an Armenian bishop carrying a profession of faith to Pope Lucius III (1181-1185). If the Union provokes long-lasting dissensions within Armenian society, the Armenians become the eastern nation most unanimously praised by the Latins, ambassadors or pilgrims, who meet them in Cilicia itself or in Jerusalem at the Monastery of Saint James, which constitutes one of the places of reception for the Latin pilgrims. How to explain this bona famaof the Armenians: consequences of an early Union, strategic interests or ascetic ideal shared between the Armenian monks and the Latin mendicant brothers? If the answer lies partly in the Latin sources, the analysis must imperatively resort to the particular contexts in which this meeting takes place: Frankish states, Armenian Cilicia, Ayyubid Empire and Mamluk Sultanate.
