Monasteries as Learning Centers
You can see ruins of medieval universities and schools when visiting Armenian churches and monasteries. From 11 to 14th centuries, monasteries served primarily as educational institutions where students learned history, philosophy, math, miniature painting, and more.
The most significant examples are the monasteries in Haghpat, Sanahin, Noravank, and Tatev.
