Architecture of Armenia & Takeo Kamiya
JAPANESE

Since born in the greater area of Syria-Palestine, Christianity spread rapidly to neighboring areas despite being oppressed violently by the Roman Empire that ruled the Middle East. It was by the Edict of Milan of 313 A.D. that the Empire approved it officially, and it was in 350 that Theodosius I set it as the state religion. But it was the Kingdom of Armenia in the north of the Middle East that embrace it in 301 A.D. in the first place, half a century previously than Rome.
