A brief annotation Voskan Yerevantsi (Voskan Vardapet, 1614-1674) is one of the biggest Armenian typographists, famous philologist and Archbishop of the Armenian Apostolic Church. In 1662 Voskan Yerevantsi travelled to Europe with an assignment from Catholicos Hagop Dzhugaetsi to publish the Bible in Armenian. He headed the printing house in Amsterdam named "Holy Echmiadzin and St Sargis", and in the period of 1666-1668 published the first edition of the Bible in Armenian. It is considered to be one of the most famous early editions of Bible in the world and the work of art of Armenian typography. The printing house, renamed "Voskanyan" in honor of Voskan Yerevantsi, was active for about 30 years and during this time 40 books were published in Armenian there.
