Abstract

This article is an attempt to clarify some of the remaining riddles in the history of the Christian peoples of the Central Caucasus using scholarly publications of Eu­ropean students of the Caucasus of the 18th and 19th centuries as the starting point. The author concentrates on the Christian princely families and the ruling Turkic dynasties that figured prominently in medieval Azerbaijan and Armenia; he relies on the very critical comments of European historians of ancient Armenian sources on the history of the Cau­casus. According to European students of the Caucasus who spent much time studying certain medieval Armenian manuscripts that found their way to Europe, at least some of them cannot be treated as reliable historical sources. Today, much of what the European historians wrote at one time has been forgot­ten, giving way to numerous articles and books on the history of the Caucasus that cite historical sources of dubious provenance without taking the trouble to critically analyze them. The author attempts to remind the aca­demic community of what European students of the Caucasus wrote some 200 or even 300 years ago regarding the extremely unreliable Armenian manuscripts.

KEYWORDS: Christianity, Turks, the Caucasus, Azerbaijan, Armenia, historical sources.

By Tal Buenos 29.09.2014

World historiography and politics have yet to catch up with post-colonial times. However, the following discovery may push further toward international recognition of political realities that are strongly linked with a history of Western imperialism: there is documentation to show that the ones who sought to tear up the Ottoman Empire in the late 19th century are the same people who spoke freely of carving up China.

The crossing paths of Western imperialism in China and Turkey are exposed in a letter that was sent on May 16, 1895 to James Bryce in London from Robert Stein of the U.S. Department of the Interior in Washington.
