Abstract:

The geographical region of the Southern Caucasus, the lowlands between the
Black and the Caspian Seas and the Armenian and Anatolian highlands is
located on the peripheries of Europe from Asia. This region shares a common
pre-history, pre-Christian and pre-Muslim cultures and beliefs. The later
periods, however, starting from the pre-Christian Iranian dominations,
followed by the Arab conquest and the later campaigns of Seljuks, Mongols
and Ottomans, had a heavy impact on the development of the region's various
ethnic languages and cultures. Nevertheless, many similarities can be found
in the languages, cultures and religious traditions of the people living in
this region. Armenia has often been a bridge between various cultures. Even
though Armenians have succeeded in preserving their original language and
culture through centuries, many of their traditions and myths, their
linguistic peculiarities, particularly in Armenian dialects, may be
explained by an often long-lasting influence of other cultures, be it
occidental (Hellenistic/Roman later Byzantine and Medieval European) or
oriental (Iranian, later Arab, Turkic, Mongolian etc.) or even Caucasian.
The Armenians have but obviously also left many traces in the languages and
cultures of Occident, Orient and the Caucasus.

This volume gives an impressive approach to an interdisciplinary view of
the linguistic and cultural properties the Armenians share with their
neighbours.
