  In the lives of our renowned medieval authors, special emphasis is put on their book-learning and ceaseless efforts to collect old manuscripts, create new ones, summarize and reassess the spiritual heritage of the past. Their devoted activity set an example for the future generations. Thus, starting with Mesrop Mashtots, the founder of the first matenadaran (“manuscript repository”), our bibliophiles and bibliographers created numerous matenadarans from the early Middle Ages to modern times. During centuries, they ramified and then became intertwined; as eternal values, they overcame all calamities and, as intellectual light, guided our people towards the future.
  In this way the Mesrop Mashtots Matenadaran came into being; our torchbearers of culture, all generations, and the entire nation as a spiritual wholeness participated in its creation. It is the outcome of the powerful instinct of our great unity, unanimity, and survival. It is the warranty of our perpetuity.
  Matenadaran – which is our identity, our banner, and our coat of arms. It is, indeed, a hymn that resonates eternally.
