Mkrtich Portukalian And The “Armenia” Journal (From Terrorism To Skeptical Modesty)
By Prof. Dr. Jean-Louis MATTEI
Abstract: Mkrtich Portukalian is one of the most significant figures in
the Armenian revolutionary movement, but there is a general lack of
knowledge about his activities and work. This applies to the famous
journal of “Armenia” published in Marseille from 1885 to 1923 by
Portukalian in Armenian. In this paper, the period under research
especially entails the years 1914, 1918, 1919, 1921, 1922 and 1923. We
will try to convey Portukalian’s personality by referring to various
sources. In the second and third section, we will address the “Armenia”
journal by frequently reminding that the revolutionist’s personality
identifies with his journal.
