ST. MESROP MASHTOTS created the 36-letter ARMENIAN ALPHABET in 405 CE; two more letters ("O" and "F") were added in the 12th century. With the creation of the alphabet, Armenian statehood was strengthened. This unique alphabet is on its own branch of the Indo-European language tree. Visit his grave at the Saint Mesrop Mashtots Cathedral in Oshakan, ~34 km from Yerevan. The church was rebuilt by Catholicos Gevork IV in 1875 over a chapel dating back to 443 CE. The belfry was added in 1884.
