The Armenian Church

Roman, judetul Neamt

AddressVeronica Micle, 13

Description

The Armenian Church was founded in 1609 by Agopsa, a representative of the Armenians in the city. The bell tower, some annexes and decorations were added in the nineteenth century. The church was built on a cruciform plan, with lateral rectangular apses and semicircular altar apse, massive carved stone pedestal and external surface provided horizontally with asize. The stone rosettes that decorate the side apses, 19 frames of windows and cornice profile with denticulated elongated offer the building another beauty note and the two towers of the nave and porch, with their friezes carved in stone, give elegance and slenderness to the entire edifice.

The interior is also decorated with stone carvings which bear the imprint of the oriental art, with their Armenian, Persian or Arabic motifs, and the feeling of monumentality is enhanced by the amplitude of the vaults, supported by the same slanting arches that characterize the Moldavian churches. The iconostasis painting and the icons on the walls of the nave and the narthex have the seal of the influence of Armenian art and was executed - most likely - in the works of 1863-1868.

The Armenian Community of Romania has only a few families now, and the church that was abandoned began to ruin, so in March 1981 the Diocese obtained from the Armenian Archdiocese of Bucharest, the building in indefinitely provisional use. Based on this agreement there have been made extensive restoration works, building and arranging, the iconostasis was brought in front and was provided the necessary space for the altar, the church adapting to the requirements of Orthodox worship. Thus, after the consecration of August 15, 1991, the halidom became a parish church which is part of the Episcopal Diocese of Roman.
