The University of Sanahin (founded in 966 AD in the Sanahin monastery, 130 years earlier than the famous Oxford University) is one of the oldest educational institutions of the world, a great historical value that can be of honor and arouse pride. Several manuscripts about Sanahin have survived up to our days; extracts from the writings of Armenian historians such as Mattheos Urhayetsi, Kirakos. Gandzaketsi, Stepanos Taronetsi - Asoghik, Samuel Anetsi, Stepanos Orbelyan and others; as well as inscriptions on the walls of the church and adjacent buildings. Sanahin still stands like a brave hero; it announces to the world that Armenians have always created, educated and spread enlightenment.
